Description

More than just another guidebook, Hiking Ontario's Heartland is an invitation to savour the best of southern Ontario's spectacular landscapes, from country fields and spruce bogs to Carolinian forests. Over forty hikes are more than two hours, but less than a day to complete. As well as providing all the necessary practical information, author Shirley Teasdale writes in a lyrical style with meticulous attention to detail, making this book so pleasurable to the senses that even committed couch potatoes will itch to lace on a pair of walking shoes. Intended for people of average fitness level, the book is divided into five geographical sections and contains helpful maps. Accompanying the text are black and white drawings of wildlife and plants that hikers may encounter along the way. Whether you are looking for good introduction to Ontario's trails or are looking for a good introduction to Ontario's trails or are interested in exploring new regions, you will find Hiking Ontario's Heartland the perfect companion.
