Mulmur & Mono – oh, my!

Scenic views, history and homemade treats await as you head north toward the villages of Mulmur and Rosemont. The drive alone will have you in awe of the remarkable landscapes of fields, meadows and rolling hills as far as the eye can see.

A visit to Mono Cliffs Provincial Park is a must, with its crevice caves, upland limestone plain and talus slopes. Hike or bike through the canyon of the Spillway Trail or take in the view past 30-metre cliffs on the Cliff-Top Side Trail.

MonocliffsContinue north to the Museum of Dufferin in Mulmur. The exceptionally curated exhibits feature the almost wild-west history of the region. While the quaintness of the area is hard to ignore, local lore places Mulmur on the map as a hideout for the notorious outlaws Jesse and Frank James. From the exhibits to the ground and on-site gift boutique featuring works by local artists, the museum is one of Headwaters’ highlights.

MODA short drive north is The Olde Stanton Store. The eclectic shop redefines the idea of country home décor and gifts. The store is packed with everything from furniture and home spa products to retro candy and their famous homemade fudge.

It was built in 1859 as the Globe Hotel, a local pub and stopping point for the stage coach. This rural gem offers hearty home cooking with an air of antique elegance and exceptional service.
