The positive relationship that has developed between the ACC and the management of Bon Echo Provincial Park is the result of many years of careful discussions and successful negotiations. These have led to an interim agreement on climbing on Mazinaw Rock that allows climbers to access the Rock pending the negotiation of a more permanent agreement with respect to climbing. During this interim period it is particularly important that climbers respect the local rules listed below.
Important: If you're planning on climbing at Bon Echo, please make sure you know and observe the rules. The park authorities take these rules very seriously. In particular, please note the following:
- Don't sling the trees!
- Some routes are closed because of pictographs at their base. Please respect route closures.
- No new route activity.
- No rappelling except at a few designated sites or in an emergency.
- The wearing of helmets when climbing at Bon Echo is now MANDATORY!!!!
Climbing is banned in most Ontario provincial parks and it's only because of the cooperation and understanding of the authorities at Bon Echo that an exception has been made for us. Please respect this spirit of cooperation.
