Want to reduce stress, spend time with friends and family, feel healthier, lower your blood pressure and have fun? Then lace up a pair of running 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 Region stretches north from Oakville and Burlington, up 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.
The Niagara Escarpment is embedded in Nicola Ross’s psyche, and the Credit River courses through her veins. Years spent exploring the countryside promoted her to use a pen to help protect her home. A columnist with In the Hills magazine and the award-winning author of six books including Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes, Nicola combines her knowledge of the landscape with her hiking skills to bring you routes that cross-cross Halton’s dramatic cliffs and sprawling farm fields.
