Revised and updated.

This is the first complete guide written for interpretive and hiking trails in Ontario's provincial parks.

Now revised and updated, it offers an overview of over 308 trails found in the 87 operating provincial parks, with a more in-depth look at the author's favorite trails in each region. Trails range from the well known and well used to those rarely visited and less traveled.

The trails lead to a variety of natural sites including:

  • Rivers and waterfalls
  • Caves and cliffs
  • Wetlands
  • Wildflowers and wildlife
  • Native pictographs
  • Abandoned farms and mines
  • Historic ruins.

Parks include:

  • Algonquin
  • Quetico
  • Lake of the Woods
  • Bon Echo
  • Petroglyphs
  • Killarney
  • Sandbanks
  • Killbear
  • Kettle Lakes
  • Turkey Point.

Most of the walks are under two hours in length and accessible for the average hiker. The book also includes safety tips, valuable advice for hiking with children, and provincial park rules and regulations.

This book is a must for hikers who want to enjoy a wilderness experience in a managed environment.
