Escarpment Trails and Treks: Two-Hour Hikes in Halton, Hamilton and Niagara (Paperback)
A perfect variety of twenty-four ideal hikes, with local highlights and quick, clear route instructions.
Escarpment Trails and Treks provides the visiting, new, and experienced hiker easily navigated two-hour hikes in Halton, Hamilton, and the Niagara Region in Southern Ontario. These regions are blessed with a plethora of waterfalls, cliffs, land features, and trails that feature historic ruins, wildlife, caves, and panoramic views of the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario.
The hikes use the Bruce Trail, conservation lands and 'secret' local trails. Hikers can view beautiful wildflowers in the spring and summer, stunning fall colours in the autumn months, and equally scenic and accessible trails in the winter.
Whether visiting from another city, province, or country, this book gives a sampling of why these natural environments are so special. Each hike provides information about the area, including historical and geographic features. Concise instructions and maps are offered in an easy-to-read format.
"In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks." - John Muir
The Hikers Dozen hopes these twenty-four two- hour hikes will provide both experienced and novice hikers therapy in nature. Enjoy
