Credit Valley Explorer
Take a ride on the Credit Valley Explorer and experience the picturesque beauty of the Hills of Headwaters. The 74-km excursion aboard classic rail cars travels along the Niagara Escarpment on a rail route established over 130 years ago. As you sit back and relax in the climate-controlled environment, the stunning views of rolling hills, deep valleys and trickling creeks will take your breath away. Known as southern Ontario’s most scenic rail tour, highlights include the 1,146-foot long trestle bridge spanning the Credit Valley and the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park at Cataract. Enjoy the interpretive commentary on the historical and natural elements of surrounding scenery, while friendly onboard staff serve complimentary refreshments.
Tours run year-round with themed tours available seasonally. Whether you are taking in the stunning fall colours, enjoying a romantic dinner aboard the Twilight train, or admiring the fresh blanket of snow lightly covering the exquisite natural landscape, you are sure to remember your trip on the Credit Valley Explorer Tour Train. Families can enjoy riding the Santa Train in comfortable heated, picture-window coaches, with freshly-baked gingerbread cookies & hot chocolate, live musical entertainment and a visit from Santa!

Mono Cliffs Provincial Park
This conservation area has nice walks around the lake (full loop approximately 8km) with plenty of chances to sit and relax or turn back. The pike fishing is often good and bass tend to be a little harder. Very shallow especially in the mid to late summer as the weeds grow taller. Best to rent a canoe to get around quickly as the boats tend to get caught in the weeds. Because the West side of the lake is fairly open it has a tendency to get quite windy. Best to go during the week as it can be quite busy on weekends and not uncommon to run out of boats to rent on hot summer days
I go here when my sisters in law visit the hairdresser in Orangeville. The place is well kept and there is lots to do, just walk the trails, boat, kayak, fish, sit on the beach or grass amphitheater, look at fish and frogs in the water, listen to Cardinals and Woodpeckers. There is free fishing rod hire, a small shop for ice creams and snacks, plus you can rent boats, canoes or kayaks. In the winter you can rent heated ice huts. A new feature appears to be an electric car charging station.
