Spend Mother's day in Mother Nature! Join ActiveDays for a lovely day complete with brunch, spring flowers, and a hike in celebration of Mothers everywhere!
Whether you are a mother, have a mother, know a mother or spend time in Mother Nature- this trip is for you!
Mono Centre is home to a number of beautiful sites- 2 of which we'll be visiting on this ActiveDays trip. The day starts off with a bus ride to the Mono Cliffs Inn - a treasure in the hamlet of Mono Centre. Here we'll have brunch (see menu below) and fuel up for our hike.
Mono Cliffs Provincial park is one of southern Ontario's finest locations. With rolling hills, cavernous rocks and well marked trails it is one of ActiveDays favourite destinations. Early may is a great time to view the beautiful and delicate ephemeral flowers as spring starts to take over the forest!

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
Active Days 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.
