There are 18 kilometres of trails in this town park close to Orangeville. Picnic tables are available beside a large pond on the property. Swimming is not advisable, though. Keep track of your route when you’re walking because trails are not well-marked. The area around the licensed gravel pit is off-limits during the spring, summer and fall.
Monora Park comes into its own when there’s snow on the ground. The trails are regularly groomed for cross-country skiing and users must belong to the Mono Nordic Ski Club to use the trail. Hikers are not allowed to use the ski trails during the winter months because they tend to break up the skiers’ tracks. Port-a-let washroom and parking available.
