Nova Scotia Trails are open!
NSORRA is happy to hear that trails are again opening across the province. We know you've been practicing your skills at home and now you're excited to get some seat time. It's up to all of us to act responsibly. Please follow the directions in the provincial statement found below.
No matter where you ride today, we encourage you to tread lightly to protect the trails as maintenance is still in progress.
Nova Scotia Ride Parks
Landowner David Lacey has announced that Hiltz Road is open. A pre-season inspection has been completed and it is noted that there is deep rutting in some places still to be repaired. Please consult with each park to ensure they are open before arriving on site. No other ride parks have been inspected yet for pre-season work.
Easing of Public Health Restrictions
Premier Stephen McNeil and Dr. Robert Strang, chief medical officer of health, announced May 1 the easing of some public health restrictions around COVID-19.
“We know that getting outdoors for recreation is important for people’s physical and mental health,” said Premier McNeil.” That’s why we are easing some restrictions, while still keeping the majority of our public health directives in place to continue fighting the virus. But I need to be clear: if we see an increase in positive cases or people not continuing to adhere to all the public health measures, the restrictions will return.”
When participating in any outdoor activity, take precautions to protect yourself and the people around you.
- You must practise social distancing during all activities. That means staying 2 metres (6 feet) away from people you don’t live with.
- Plan your activities only with the people you live with.
- Gatherings are limited to 5 people or fewer.
- Stay home if you’re feeling sick.
- Limit non-essential travel. You should use the parks and trails in your local area, if possible.
- Keep your hands clean. If you have hand sanitizer, bring it with you.
- Follow cough and sneeze etiquette.
