Hiking at Mono Cliffs

6 June 2005 No Comment

cliff_trailOn the Victoria Day long weekend, we went hiking up at Mono Cliffs near Orangeville. This is a small provincial park with several trails that traverse the Niagara escarpment in that area. The Bruce trail also goes through that region. The parking is just a self serve metered park, $10.00 for the day.

That weekend, the bugs had not started biting, but the weather was warm and sunny, so we had an amazing day.

You weren’t supposed to get any closer, although the ten foot drop would have made it tricky to check the cave out, even if we’d wanted to.
