For your comfort and safety: Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions. Please note that the trail is not cleared in winter so ice may be a concern. Please stay on the trail path and leave only footprints. Pets should remain on a leash and bags are supplied at each trail head so you can pick up after your dogs. Visitor Services: Visitor Services are available along the extended trail at the Visitor Information Centre in downtown Liverpool between mid-May and mid-October.
