Rock Dunder Expectations & Waiver and Release

Please be reminded that recreational drone use and geocaching are prohibited on Rideau Waterway Land Trust properties to protect the biodiversity of our conservation reserves.


Please read the following carefully:

  • Rock Dunder is a unique and beautiful natural feature of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere. It is preserved in its natural state for your enjoyment by the Rideau Waterway Land Trust, a local, non-profit organization.
  • As such, the trails at Rock Dunder are wilderness trails, left in a largely untouched state. You will encounter varied terrain underfoot, including sections with protruding roots and rocks. Some sections are winding and include significant upward or downward slopes; others allow unrestricted access to unprotected cliff overlooks.
  • Specific weather conditions may increase the difficulty of hiking the trails and terrain.
  • These trails are made available for use strictly at your own risk. They are not recommended for young children or people with health or balance issues. Hiking boots and poles are recommended.
  • If you or any of your party have doubts about your ability to safely use these trails, you/they should not attempt the trails.

Please be aware, by checking "I agree" to the document that follows, you and your party are acknowledging that you have been informed of the conditions and challenges of the terrain at Rock Dunder and each of you is willingly assuming the risk for using them.

By checking "I agree" to this document, you are also relinquishing all legal rights to seek redress of any kind from the Rideau Waterway Land Trust for your presence on and use of the Rock Dunder lands, trails, and adjacent lands.

If you understand and agree to these terms, please check "I agree" and proceed to purchase your pass.

Thank you.
