Hunting season is upon us :(

Why the sad emoji?  Because it’s time to curb our hiking, take precautions, avoid the trail at the time of year when it’s so great for hiking.


  • Be aware of your surroundings
  • Watch for trail closures
  • Wear bright clothing and keep your dogs on leash (for their own safety)
  • Nov 4-10   AND  Dec 2-8:   The entire Maitland Trail closed
  • Oct 1 – Dec 31:  Jenkins Corner to Riverbend (km 7.9 – 10.5) closed
