Trail Etiquette

The Town of Ajax Waterfront Trail Etiquette signage pilot project is a temporary project designed to gather feedback regarding trail etiquette signage content and placement.

Trail Etiquette Explained

Be courteous

All trail users, including bicyclists, joggers, walkers, wheelchairs, skateboards, bladers and skaters, should all be respectful of other users regardless of their mode, speed or level of skill.

Keep Right

Stay as near to the right side of the trail as is safe, except when passing another user.

Slow down to pass

Pass others, going your direction, on their left. Use hand signal to alert those behind you of your moves. Look ahead and back to make sure the lane is clear before you pull out and pass.

Give audible warning

Give a clear signal by using voice, bell or horn before passing. Give the person you are passing time to respond. Watch for their reaction

Control Your Speed

Be mindful that many different types of trail users are present. Control your speed, especially when passing other trail users.

Keep dog leash lengths minimal

Be considerate of other trail users. Please keep dog leash lengths minimal so as not to trip or impede the movement of other trail users.
