|Event Date / Time:|
The seasons have changed and this year's Fall colours outing we're headed back to Mono Cliffs Provincial Park northeast of Orangeville along the Bruce Trail.
We have a bit of everything for those who have never been, cliffs, great views, lakes, and a good hike on varied terrain. Portions of the trail while not difficult, do require your attention. For those with mobility issues, this won't be your outing.
The game plan
Arrive at Mono Cliffs Provincial Park at the 2nd Line Road East Entrance at 9:30 AM, you park on the side of the road. The morning portion of the hike we will cover roughly 5.8 km and break at Mono Cliffs Inn for lunch. The afternoon portion of the hike is about 3km and we loop back to our cars.
How to get there: Highway 410 to Highway 10, go north past Orangeville to Dufferin (Mono Centre) Road #8, turn east and follow that to Mono Centre. From there take 2nd Line East north to the end and find parking on the side of the road. Travel time from Oakville by car will be just over an hour.
What to Take With You:
This is a hike, so bare minimum is running shoes however hiking boots or shoes are highly recommended. We will be covering about 8 km in total so it's wise to travel with a camera backpack if you have one or travel light with a shoulder bag. I would also bring a polarizing filter to make the colours pop.
There is a sign up sheet at the October 3rd Meeting as we need to make a reservation at Mono Cliffs Inn so we can space for us as it is one of their busy seasons.
