Please note: A section of the Monarch trail is closed until further notice. This closure is well marked on site and alternative trail options are available.

This gently rolling loop trail takes you through a mix of habitats from rare cedar savannah to adjacent farm fields and a restored stand of white pine. Year-round wildlife sightings, seasonal viewscapes and connections to the other Bob Hunter Memorial Park trails offer a new experience with each visit.
