This is a spectacular fall trail. The trail passes cliff faces, lakes, UNESCO protected foliage...it's quiet amazing. Lots to see over 9km of rolling trails. So let’s spend a day in the fabulous Ontario wilderness, in the company of other outdoor enthusiasts from all over the GTA!
Mono Cliffs Provincial Park contains a significant section of the Niagara Escarpment, including crevice caves, an upland limestone plain, and talus slopes. The trails here are enjoyable any time of the year but are especially lovely in the fall when the maples and beeches in the park exhibit spectacular colors. The trip is a guided hike and transportation is included in the price.
Prime attractions include walks through mixed hardwood forests and above and below tall cliffs. There are two prominent outliers, a glacial spillway, a kettle lake and a kame moraine.
