We will hike into Mono Cliffs Park along the Spillway Trail and back along the Cliff Top Trail to return to the Mono Community Centre parking lot around noon. This hike is designed to give new hikers a sense of what hiking on the Bruce Trail has to offer. Since the ground on this 9.0 km hike is uneven and rocky (and may be muddy) in some sections, hiking boots or hiking shoes are preferable but since new hikers may not have access to all equipment, just be sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. If you do bring bottled water, snacks or extra clothes, please consider carrying these in a knapsack or fanny pack so your hands are free making walking more comfortable. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before hike departure time.

    Meet at:

    Mono Community Centre parking lot.

    Take Hwy 10 north to Dufferin Road 8 about 10 km north of Orangeville. Follow Road 8 to Mono Centre. The hike leader’s car will have a Canadian flag attached to the window behind the driver’s seat. We will leave all cars in this parking lot while we complete this loop hike.

      Description

      Difficulty: Easy

      This 9 km loop hike will take approximately 2.5 hours and is at a leisurely pace over moderate terrain. There is no dropout point. We will hike into Mono Cliffs Park along the Spillway Trail and back along the Cliff Top Trail to return to the Mono Community Centre parking lot around noon. This hike is designed to give new hikers a sense of what hiking on the Bruce Trail has to offer. Since the ground on this 9.0 km hike is uneven and rocky (and may be muddy) in some sections, hiking boots or hiking shoes are preferable but since new hikers may not have access to all equipment, just be sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. If you do bring bottled water, snacks or extra clothes, please consider carrying these in a knapsack or fanny pack so your hands are free making walking more comfortable. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before hike departure time.

      Meet at:

      Mono Community Centre parking lot.

      Take Hwy 10 north to Dufferin Road 8 about 10 km north of Orangeville. Follow Road 8 to Mono Centre. The hike leader’s car will have a Canadian flag attached to the window behind the driver’s seat. We will leave all cars in this parking lot while we complete this loop hike.

    Guest interpretive leader is Dianne Watkins member of Friends of Kerncliff Park, Burlington’s Field and Stream Rescue Team and  Master’s candidate at U of Waterloo studying ecological restoration. Please arrive at 8:45AM to sign in and the hike will start at 9AM. This education walk will start at the parking lot at City View Park where there is lots of parking. Kerns Road is one way going north after Kerncliff park.  To enter from Dundas (#5) turn south on Kerns Road and take 2nd entrance on the left hand side. If coming from south take the first driveway on the right.  From the City View parking lot, we’ll work our way down into Kerncliff Park after stopping at the beautiful lookout point, and walk through the forest to the old Nelson Quarry where there is now a beautiful wetland and boardwalk.  Dianne will talk about restoration work that FKP and community collaborators have done in this City of Burlington-managed park.  The Bruce Trail runs along the top and has the Ian Reid side trail running through. We’ll talk about the invasive species such as buckthorn and dog strangling vine as well as the native species planting that has encouraged wildlife to come back like red wing blackbirds, northern map turtles and northern water snakes.  The trail has some slopes and if it’s dry we’ll take the steep rocky path up the escarpment after visiting the old quarry. Wear good boots and be prepared for ticks that are active above 4C.  Poles help with keeping yourself stable over roots and rocks.   More information about ticks https://conservationhamilton.ca/ticks-and-lyme-disease/ For a map of Kerncliff https://atasteoftrace.com/2016/10/27/burlington-hikes-kerncliff-park/ orhttps://www.alltrails.com/trail/canada/ontario/ian-reid-side-trail-and-bruce-trail-loop   We will be taking it slow especially on the steep trail back up to City View.  Bring water and snacks.   

    Registration helps me figure out how many people to look for and let you know if the hike is cancelled due to high winds or thunderstorms.  Contact Bron brontreg@cogeco.ca 905-637-7136

Please arrive at 8:45AM to sign in and the hike will start at 9AM. This education walk will start at the parking lot at City View Park where there is lots of parking. Kerns Road is one way going north after Kerncliff park.  To enter from Dundas (#5) turn south on Kerns Road and take 2nd entrance on the left hand side. If coming from south take the first driveway on the right.  From the City View parking lot, we’ll work our way down into Kerncliff Park after stopping at the beautiful lookout point, and walk through the forest to the old Nelson Quarry where there is now a beautiful wetland and boardwalk.  Dianne will talk about restoration work that FKP and community collaborators have done in this City of Burlington-managed park.  The Bruce Trail runs along the top and has the Ian Reid side trail running through. We’ll talk about the invasive species such as buckthorn and dog strangling vine as well as the native species planting that has encouraged wildlife to come back like red wing blackbirds, northern map turtles and northern water snakes.  The trail has some slopes and if it’s dry we’ll take the steep rocky path up the escarpment after visiting the old quarry. Wear good boots and be prepared for ticks that are active above 4C.  Poles help with keeping yourself stable over roots and rocks.   More information about ticks https://conservationhamilton.ca/ticks-and-lyme-disease/ For a map of Kerncliff https://atasteoftrace.com/2016/10/27/burlington-hikes-kerncliff-park/ orhttps://www.alltrails.com/trail/canada/ontario/ian-reid-side-trail-and-bruce-trail-loop   We will be taking it slow especially on the steep trail back up to City View.  Bring water and snacks.   

      Registration helps me figure out how many people to look for and let you know if the hike is cancelled due to high winds or thunderstorms.  Contact Bron brontreg@cogeco.ca 905-637-7136

    2. Please arrive 10 minutes before start of hike.
    3. Participants are expected to wear appropriate attire for the weather and the terrain. In summer, sturdy footwear is necessary.

Hiking poles are a good idea in any season, especially if the terrain is rocky or slippery. Wearing appropriate clothing and footwear prevents injuries and shows consideration for a safe and positive group hiking experience.

    5. For spring and summer hikes bring sunscreen, insect repellent and water.

    Bruce Trail ranges from fields to rocky slopes.  On this hike we’ll hike over various terrain ranging from difficult rocky wooded trail to gentle slopes over open meadow.  Starting at the lower parking lot at Crawford Lake we’ll take the Bruce Side trail down into the valley then back up a very rocky section of the main trail, following the escarpment to the lookout then continue to follow the Bruce Trail until the junction of the Crawford lake forest trail back to the centre where you can enjoy the Iroquoian village reconstruction.  Trail may be adjusted according to weather.   We will take it slow over the rocky bits and keep to a gentle pace.   Wear good hiking boots to help with grip on rocky trail. Poles recommended to help with balance and when rocks are slippery.  This is a good hike for those wanting to try more difficult sections at a gentle pace.  Bring snacks and water.  There are washrooms available, indoor ones open at 10 am. There is a place to have lunch if you want to stay and enjoy the interpretive section of  the park.  Map 11 in your Bruce Trail Guide.

    Entrance fee for those without a Conservation Halton annual pass. Please note that you get a discount when you purchase an annual pass with your Bruce Trail membership. Its well worth it to support the conservation areas that protect our trail.

    Registration not required but it helps so we know how many are coming. Please contact me for more information Bron brontreg@cogeco.ca or 905-637-7136. Co-leader Melissa Hawrylyshyn m.hawrylyshyn@gmail.com    Cancelled in high winds, thunderstorms or very heavy rain.
