Although the government has lifted restrictions on accessing Provincial Parks, there are a few things you should know and keep in mind. Social distancing is STILL a requirement for everyone. If the Mood Road parking area is full of cars, it’s probably a good idea to go elsewhere. Also, work is still being done in in the Park to prepare Ellenwood for the upcoming season. If you’re not sure whether or not it’s OK to walk there, call the Department of Lands and Forestry and ask them directly, 902-648-3540.
The black flies have also returned to Ellenwood – in clouds. They’re not biting yet, but they will in the next few days!
We’re very happy at the increased numbers of walkers we’re seeing out on the roads every day… one good side-effect of this terrible pandemic. The Friends of Ellenwood would like to encourage EVERYONE to make walking a part of your ‘new normal’. Don’t stop now!
