Product description

Review

An exceptional book for the outdoor enthusiast on a time budget. It provides comprehensive, well researched trip information (including detailed maps). (Robert James Canadian Camera)

An ancient and rugged country, with numerous beautiful places just waiting to be explored on foot and by paddle. (Diana Mumford Wave Length Magazine)

Designed for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a quick escape to nature... a fine guide to Southern Ontario's outdoors. (Andrew Ryan Globe and Mail 2005-07-09)

If you don't have time to spare for a whole weekend of camping [this book] is the perfect guide for you. (Bushwhacker Wilderness Adventure 2005-10-24)

From the Author

This book contains a collection of 22 excursions that combine hiking and paddling to explore trails and waterways throughout southern Ontario's Canadian Shield landscape. It is a practical guide which includes detailed maps and instructions for the excursion routes. The book also celebrates the wild beauty of the Shield, with many photographs and descriptions of the fascinating natural and human historical features that may be found along the way.

The excursions are scattered across the southern portion of Ontario's Shield, including Frontenac, Bon Echo, Algonquin, The Massasauga, Killarney and Lake Superior, along with some of the province's less well-known parks.

The book combines paddling and hiking in every excursion, giving the excursion-goer a wonderful variety of perspectives and a welcome balance of exercise. The excursions are designed so that a reasonably fit person with basic competence in paddling and hiking can comfortably accomplish them in a single day. The paddling is entirely flat-water and the portages are infrequent and usually short. The hiking trails are often rugged but do not require any technical climbing skills or equipment apart from a pair of comfortable hiking boots. Alternative routes are frequently suggested in order to accommodate differing levels of physical ability and available time. The book also includes a wealth of practical advice about gear for hiking and paddling, excursions with your dog, and useful information about where to stay, what to see and who to contact in each of the excursion areas.
