The lifejacket for nautical activities must be worn at all times as well as the mountain biking and fat bike helmet.
The Regional Park Devil’s Mountain can assure a good outcome of your stay or activity, without however being held responsible for the unpredictable (bad weather, unforeseen logistical problems…) unforeseeable natural catastrophes or work related strikes etc. The Regional Park Devil’s Mountain will not be held responsible for unpaid reserved activities on the mountain.
Each participant must recognize that the practise of the activities and his or her aptitude for it, proposed by the Regional Park Devil’s Mountain could present certain risks that he or she must personally assume by his or her inscription or having paid an access fee. Therefore the participant agrees to renounce any reclamation against the Regional Park Devil’s Mountain, the directors, employees, agents or representatives in the case of incidents, accidents, death whatever the cause.

The Leave No Trace principles of outdoor ethics
Leave No Trace is a national and international program designed to assist outdoor enthusiasts with their decisions about how to reduce their impacts when they hike, camp, picnic, snowshoe, run, bike, paddle, ski or climb. The program strives to educate all those who enjoy the outdoors about the nature of their recreational impacts as well as techniques to prevent and minimize such impacts. Leave No Trace is best understood as an educational and ethical program, not as a set of rules and regulations.
1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
· Know the regulations and special concerns for the area you’ll visit
· Prepare for extreme weather, hazards and emergencies.
· Schedule your trip to avoid times of high use
· Visit in small groups. Split larger parties into groups of 4-6
· Repackage food to minimise waste
· Use a map and compass to eliminate the use of marking paint, rock cairns or flagging.
2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
· Durable surfaces include established trails and campsites, rock, gravel, dry grasses of snow.
· Protect riparian areas by camping at least 70 meters from lakes and streams.
Good campsites are found not made. Altering a site is not necessary.
· Limit your stay to two nights.
In popular areas:
· Concentrate use on existing trails and campsites.
· Walk single file in the middle of the trail, even when wet or muddy.
· Keep campsites small. Focus activity in areas where vegetation is absent.
3. Dispose of Waste properly
· Pack it in, pack it out. Inspect your campsite and rest areas for trash or spilled foods. Pack out all trash, leftover food and litter.
· Use dry toilettes when possible.
· Deposit human waste in catholes dug 15 to 20 cm deep at least 70 metres from water, camp and trails. Cover and disguise the cathole when finished.
· Pack out toilet paper and hygiene products.
· To wash yourself or your dishes, carry water 70 meters away from streams or lakes and use small amounts of biodegradable soap. Scatter strained dishwater.
· Before you leave, double check the site.
4. Leave What You Find
· Preserve the past: examine, but do not touch, cultural or historic structures and artifacts.
· Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them. Take a photo instead!
· Avoid introducing or transporting non-native species.
· Do not build structures, furniture or dig trenches.
5. Minimize Campfire Impacts
· Campfires can cause lasting impacts to the backcountry. Use a lightweight stove for cooking and enjoy a candle lantern for light.
· Where fires are permitted, use established fire rings, fire pans, or mound fires.
· Keep fires small. Only use sticks from the ground that can be broken by hand.
· Burn all wood and coals to ash, put out campfires, then scatter cool ashes.
6. Respect Wildlife
· Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach them.
Never feed wild animals. Feeding wildlife damages their health, alters natural behaviors and exposes them to predators and other dangers.
· Protect wildlife and your food by storing rations and trash securely.
· Avoid wildlife during sensitive times: mating, nesting, raising young or winter.
7. Be Considerate of Others
· Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
· Be courteous. Yield to other users on the trail.
Let nature’s sounds prevail. Avoid loud voices and noises.
