Hike at Mono Cliffs

Mono Cliffs contains a significant section of the Niagara Escarpment, including crevice caves, an upland limestone plain, and talus slopes. The park features two prominent masses of rock, separated by erosion from the main rock body.

Botanists have noted that the local vegetation includes a particularly rich diversity of ferns.

This conservation area is part of the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve. It has a parking lot, toilets, and trails for hiking. The natural features in the park are fragile.

Location: Fourteen km northeast of Orangeville, four km east of Mono Centre. Take hwy. 10 north from Orangeville to Mono Centre Rd. (Dufferin County Rd. 8), then go east eight km past the village of Mono Centre to the 3rd Line E.H.S. Go north one km on 3rd Line E.H.S. OR take Airport Rd. to Mono Centre Rd. (Dufferin County Rd. 8), then go west to 3rd Line E.H.S. North one km on 3rd Line E.H.S

The locatin of this Sunday's hike has been changed to Mono Cliffs as Albion Hills is a low lying area with marshy areas around it which mean that there will be a lot of bugs in that area.

Thank you to those that came out today and a special thank you to car pool drivers for making this day possible for other members. The trip to the cider estate was pretty neat too...the food was eh! but the samplings/ tastings were good. Good day today.

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the group. Just wondering where do we meet once we are at Albion Hills Conservation. Looking at the map there are a few parking lots and few trails to explore.
