Name The Mono Tract Trail
Description 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.  Although not a developed recreational area, this is a pleasant area for a quiet walk.  The cross-country skiing is great, but look out for cross traffic coming down hilly side trails.
Activities Hiking, biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, horseback riding
