Mono Cliffs Group Hike
Hike wild sections of forest and rock along the Niagara Escarpment
multiple date options: September 1, October 5
ActiveDays and Parkbus are heading to Mono Cliffs Provincial Park to trek through some magical forest and imposing cliffs.
Just over an hour from Toronto and nestled within rolling hills, Mono Cliffs is a gem. The Bruce Trail passes through and follows a trail above some escarpment cliffs that can reach 30m in height. There are great viewpoints and stunning rock formations. Mono Cliffs is also home to a beautiful forest filled with ferns and old growth trees. It’s a wild and atmospheric space.
We will depart Toronto at 9:15 AM from our pick up location. Once we arrive at Mono Cliffs we will have roughly 4.5 hours to hike and explore. There is a network of trails that can be linked to extend or shorten the hike.
We can’t think of a better way to spend a summer day. Come with us and explore.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH ACTIVEDAYS
To us, facilitating this event is about creating an environment that you can engage with in your own way. This is your experience and everyone has their own relationship with the outdoors and their bodies. We want to meet you where you are at — you can take part in the hike, or wander off on your own adventure
ActiveDays is also a community. This is an inclusive space to meet new people, share stories and have fun! To us, there is no better place to get to know someone than the outdoors. We all share a desire to get out, explore and move.
All ActiveDays participants are required to sign a waiver. We will bring printed copies of the waiver to sign on the bus. You can find a digital copy of a sample waiver HERE
