  • We walked the Bruce Trail through the park & truly enjoyed ourselves! The cliffs are amazing and the landscape ranges from plains to plateaus. 
  • The Southern Outlier loop in Mono Cliffs is one of our favourite easy hikes. The other trails are also nice. You'll get a nice mix of forest and meadow and their are some small ponds and a bit of elev...  more »
  • Perfect place for a family outing, close to Toronto, great scenery. Perfect for all seasons but fall is my favourite.

  • Absolutely beautiful during the fall. I went with some friends one weekend and came back again with my mom the very next weekend. Worth the drive, lots of trails, and wonderful for those who like a large variety in scenery. Valleys, ridges, hill tops, look outs, lakes, heavy to light wooded areas, open fields, and more.
  • It was a great place to take the family for a walk. We all enjoyed the fall colors. Trails were well marked and very clean to walk. Granted we only did two trail loops still would highly recommend this place.
  • Really liked this park and the trails it provides. The Carriage Trail just brings you up the hill, but it links to several other trails that are quite nice. Especially liked the Cliff-Top Side Trail as it brings you to a look out inon top of the hill with a great view over the "lake" below. The part of the Walter Tovell Trail that connects to Cliif-Top Trail and brings you back to Carriage Trail is very beautiful. There's quite a few nice trails to discover in the park.
  • Simply, breath taking views. A great place to bring friends and family to experience Canada in all its glory. Just remember to stay on the paths and don't venture off of them. Otherwise you'll disturb the fragile ecosystem.
  • Very beautiful park. Trails are well maintained and should be easy for parents of young kids for those with slight mobility impairment. The gem to see here would be the stairs down through a large crevasse. Would also suggest to hike over to the small lake.
