Monora Park is just north outside of Orangeville. Though not a large area it has a dedicated Nordic ski club maintaining it.

You will find a lot of short trails; some have tight corners and steep runs. A seasoned skier would like this place but a beginner may find it too confined to turn and stop.

There is a 2 km night lit trail for the after work ski crowd. Some real nice scenic spots on the trail, a cedar grove, hardwood stand and open flats.

Races are held here too and I can see them as being hard if you use the hills repeatedly.

Not the best spot for your first time on skis because of some of the tight spots on the trail.

Still if you are willing stick to the outer yellow, orange, or blue trails, most occasional cross-country skiers will enjoy the loops, before walking up some of the faster red runs.

The club offers rentals on the weekend at a very reasonable rate.

It’s all about getting us out there skiing. The pavilion has space to eat your own lunch and to change, but no food to buy.
