Mono Tract Trail
Ruffed grouse and white-tailed deer keep you company in this nice pine, spruce and mixed hardwood forest. Located in a Dufferin County forest, this trail follows old logging roads. It’s not a difficult hike, but don’t expect a perfectly groomed right of way. Consider it stroller-accessible, but with difficulty.
County agreement forests were planted 50 or more years ago to stop serious erosion during the Dustbowl Years in Ontario. People were forced to abandon unproductive farms on marginal land that was really only suitable for trees. Government replanting programs were designed to hold the landscape in place. Although not a developed recreational area, this is a pleasant area for a quiet walk. Don’t look for any facilities. The cross-country skiing is great, but look out for cross traffic coming down hilly side trails.
