Exploring Mono Township - Mono Ontario

Each weekend Margaret and I decide to explore a new area of Ontario. This particular weekend it was Mono Township. Located about 40 minutes north of Mississauga and Brampton, you will find yourself in the middle of the Hills and Headwaters area of southern Ontario.

There are many areas the see and explore while in Mono. There are great hiking trails at the Mono Cliffs Provincial Park and the Bruce Trail runs through the park. If you want to go for a leisurely drive and explore the local area, you will be surprised by the beautiful scenery.

 A little to the south of Mono Centre, is the Hockley Valley. Very picturesque and really worth the drive in all four seasons.


We continued further north and checked out Boyne Valley Provincial Park. The area has fantastic topography and many hiking trails to explore. Along the way, stop at Ponton Mills. The remains of an old grist mill stands along the Boyne River. It was built in this location in 1896 by George H. Shepherd and operated until the early 1900s.
