Frequently Asked Questions

 

HOW DO I MAKE A RESERVATION?

From this point forward, Kortright visitors and Conservation Parks members will be required to make a reservation prior to their visit.

Here is how it works: After you have made your online reservation and arrived at Kortright, you will drive up to the gate and stop. Your license plate will be viewed by the gate attendant, who will ensure the occupant number matches reservation details and will permit entry.

If there is any issue with your license plate, a gate attendant will scan the barcode on your ticket.

 

WHAT IF I WANT TO WALK INTO KORTRIGHT?

Regardless of how you enter Kortright, you still need to make a reservation. The only difference is that you will show your e-ticket at the gatehouse, either printed out or on your phone, rather than having your license plate scanned.

 

WHAT IF THE DAY OR TIME I WANT ISN'T AVAILABLE?

We expect that there will be a surge of demand for visitation when we first open the reservation system, but that it will subside in a couple of weeks. Until it does, please be patient. You can check back to see if we have added other days or times that work for you.

 

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY?

Cancellation requests received by TRCA more than three days before the start of the program will receive a 75% refund of the relevant program fees paid. Cancellation requests received by TRCA less than three days before the start of the program do not qualify for a refund. Please contact us in cases of sickness prior to the program so we can be in touch about rescheduling or refunding. Rescheduling is subject to availability. Cancellation requests must be received in writing by email to vservices@trca.ca.

 

WHAT IF THE WEATHER LOOKS BAD FOR MY RESERVATION DAY AND TIME?

Reserved visits are “rain or shine,” as many of our visitors enjoy Kortright Centre regardless of the weather. If a weather event requires us to close Kortright, reserved visits will be cancelled, you will be emailed, and refunds will be issued.

 

ARE ANY OF YOUR INDOOR FACILITIES OPEN?

The indoor washrooms inside our Visitor Centre are open. There are no water fountains available or food items for sale at this time. Our gift shop remains closed during this stage of our opening.

Indoor facilities will be opened once we determine how to do so safely. The reopening of facilities will be communicated on our website and social media.

 

ARE WASHROOMS AVAILABLE ON SITE?

Indoor washrooms are open. We ask you respect physical distancing guidelines and wear a face mask or face covering. The Regional Municipality of York has endorsed a recommendation from Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Karim Kurji regarding the mandatory use of face masks and coverings inside enclosed public spaces.

WILL YOU HAVE HANDWASHING AND HAND SANITIZER AVAILABLE ON SITE?

Handwashing and hand sanitizer are available in our indoor washrooms.

 

IS THERE SOMEWHERE I CAN FILL MY WATER BOTTLE?

No. Our water fountains, are closed, so please make sure to bring enough water with you.

 

WHAT TRAILS ARE AVAILABLE AND WHAT ARE THEY LIKE?

All of our trails are currently open. VIEW AND DOWNLOAD THE KORTRIGHT TRAIL MAP.

We recommend reviewing the trails for length and difficulty prior to your visit.

 

HOW CAN I PASS OTHERS SAFELY ON NARROW TRAILS?

Whenever possible, you are encouraged to use wider sections of the trail (such as rest areas and intersections) for passing, and to speak up, kindly, to alert others when passing them on the trail.

If needed, you can step off the trail, briefly, to allow another person to pass you.

In general, please just be courteous, kind and patient.

 

WHAT ABOUT TRAIL RUNNING?

Trail running is currently permitted. We ask that you be mindful of how you use the trail, and make sure to share the trail with others

If possible, please consider days and time that will be less busy, and speak up, kindly, to alert others when passing them on the trail.

 

WHAT ABOUT BIKING?

Bicycles are not currently permitted at Kortright. We are looking into safe ways of adapting trails for cycling, but this will take time.

Cycling is available at TRCA’s Albion Hills Conservation Park.

 

WHAT ABOUT PICNICKING?

Picnicking at Kortright is permitted, as long as physical distancing is practiced, visit time limits are respected, and no trash is left behind.

Visitors are also expected to stay with their household group and abide by all Provincial orders regarding social gatherings and group activities.

As the Province updates these guidelines, we will offer more activities and options at Kortright.

 

DO YOU HAVE WHEELCHAIR- OR WALKER-FRIENDLY TRAILS?

We have a few wheelchair-accessible sections of trail that are currently open.

Visitors can assess the accessibility of a trail for their own needs using this map , or the trail head signs at Kortright.

 

DOES MY SUPPORT WORKER NEED TO PAY IN ORDER TO VISIT KORTRIGHT WITH ME?

No. If you have a support worker who will be visiting Kortright with you, just make the reservation for yourself and then identify your support worker when you arrive at the gatehouse.
