Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes
with a Foreword by singer-songwriter and Niagara Escarpment admirer Sarah Harmer
Want to reduce stress, spend time with friends and family, feel healthier and have fun? Then lace up a pair of walking shoes and hit the trails.
Building on the success of Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes, Nicola Ross’s latest hiking guide, Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes, expands into new hiking territory.
Nicola describes 37 routes that will appeal to casual walkers as well as seasoned hikers. Her loops all begin and conveniently end at the same location, so there’s no need to drop a car or to retrace one’s footsteps. Ranging in length from 3.6 to 24.8 kilometres, each is accompanied by a detailed map, precise directions, loads of colour photos and a smattering of local lore.
Halton Hikes features routes in Oakville and Burlington, along the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment near Campbellville, Milton, Acton, Georgetown and Glen Williams, and into the rural areas just across the border near Eden Mills, Rockwood, Erin, Cheltenham and Terra Cotta. If you live in or visit the Greater Toronto Area and the Golden Horseshoe, Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes will provide you with days of enjoyment.
