Mono Hiking Challenge Logo

This year is Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation & one of the ways that Mono will be celebrating is by hosting a Mono Hiking Challenge.

Canoe North Adventures logoThe 'challenge' is to hike one or all of the 20 designated hikes that are part of the program. For each hike completed, a participant will receive an entry into the Grand Prize draw, a 1 week stay for two people at Canoe North Adventure Lodge, in Norman Wells, Northwest Territories courtesy of Canoe North Adventures.

To become a participant, all that you need to do is register here. Then, from June 4th through October 31th, 2017, hike as many of the designated trails as you want.

Each time you complete one of the designated trails you will receive an entry into the Grand Prize draw. Hike one trail - get one entry; hike 5 trails - get 5 entries & so on. Hike all 20 and you will be entered into the draw twenty times.

During each hike you will be asked to take a selfie at a specially designated sign post on the trail and share the image on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #monohikingchallenge.

Mono Hiking Challenge Guided Hikes

Sunday June 4th, 2017

Get a head start on the Mono Hiking Challenge by joining us on June 4th for two guided hikes.

With the assistance of the Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club, we will be leading two guided hikes in the morning.

There will be two hikes to choose from: one a casual walk along the Laidlaw Sidetrail up to the Burns Cemetery and a more vigorous hike on the South Outlier trail in Mono Cliffs Provincial Park.

Each hike will start at Mono Community Centre. They will both end back at the community centre in time for the openning ceremonies of the Mono Family Picnic including the arrival of Queen Victoria.

To register for the hikes please email us at [email protected] a nd be sure to bring your camera or mobile phone so that you can take your selfie and enter into the Hiking Challenge.

Burns Cemetery Loop

This 2 km walk is on mostly level terrain. The trail follows the Laidlaw Sidetrail to the historic Burns Cemetery north of Mono Centre. It then loops through Mono Cliffs Provincial Park making its way back to Mono Community Centre.

South Outlier

This hike normally starts from the parking lot on the 3rd Line but for this guided hike we will be starting from Mono Community Centre and thereby avoiding the steep switchback at the north end of the loop. The hike is about 5 km and includes some moderate hills.

Pack a picnic for after the hike and spend the afternoon at Mono’s Family Picnic.
