Smoking and vaping is prohibited in all RDN regional and community parks including trails at all times.
The RDN encourages all users of parks and trails on Vancouver Island to use caution when in the forest, to be aware of fire hazards and to obey fire regulations. Never drop a burning cigarette or other burning substances in the forest.
