Higher Use Means Higher Risk: Many people and many touch points means higher risks. We continue to maintain backcountry facilities, but increased use and limited cleaning capacity in the backcountry means higher risks for everyone. Please do your part to help keep the facilities clean.
Be Prepared: Bring your own hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies and toilet paper. Remember, these and any scented items are bear attractants. Store them in the bear-proof lockers on site. You are responsible for your safety and cleanliness in the backcountry.
Clean Your Hands: Wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer before and after coming into contact with communal surfaces. This includes door handles, toilet seats, bear-proof bin latches, picnic tables, axe handles, etc. Refrain from touching your face with unclean hands.
Pack it in? Pack it Out: Practice “leave no trace.” Pack out everything you packed in and leave the area better than you found it.
Maintain Physical Distance and Stop the Spread: Stay at least 2 meters away from people you do not live with. Go home if you are sick or experiencing symptoms.
Everyone who travels in the backcountry should be fully prepared. You should plan to self-rescue if possible. If not...
