ALL TRAILS are OPEN ! Hiking is allowed anywhere on the Reserve. Equestrians and bikers please stay on designated trails and note that orange cones have been placed at problem spots.

RENOVATION UPDATE: The Old 131 Trail is now closed at Bridge 13. The Bridge is being removed, sandblasted, repainted and then set back in place. This closure and process is expected to last until about September 15th.
Alternate trails around the closure are: from the south take the Bridge 14 Trail to Rogers Road, to the Blackhawk Rock Trail, to Indian Creek Road and the Rockton Trail to Rockton. Just the opposite if you are coming from the North. During wet conditions , Old 131 will be open from the south end to County Road P. The alternate route trails will not be open to Rockton during wet weather.
Thank you for your cooperation on this matter!
The river is OPEN from Ontario to Landing 14 thanks to the hard work of canoe liveries, volunteers, local loggers with tough log skidders, and the KVR crew. The section between landing 14 and 20 has a log jam near the south end but is reported to be passable. The current remains stronger than usual for August. Safety first!!!
All campsites are OPEN. Please use caution on the river access sites, due to the changes of the river, access could be difficult.
