It is necessary that all persons take responsibility for their own actions. The Vancouver Island Trails Information Society and their editors will not be held liable for any mishap occurring as a consequence of any misunderstanding or misrepresentation of any content of their books or website, or any actions taken in reliance thereon, or for any errors or omissions. Each hiker is responsible for his/her own safety. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the hike descriptions and correctness of the advice in their books and on their website, hikers must take all reasonable care to ensure that when a hike is undertaken they will be able to do the hike safely. Updates to hikes posted on the website are usually submitted by local volunteers and VITIS cannot guarantee the information received nor that it is the most current and best information available.
