What’s New For Volume II


  • 20 new hikes and hiking areas are introduced from Hardy Lake Provincial Park in the North to the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area in the east to Dundas Valley and the Dofasco 2000 Trail to the south

  • We’ve included an expanded first aid section with the addition of diagnosing and treating; heatstroke, dehydration, sprained ankles and more

  • Greater detail around navigation and trail ratings.  Maps have been enlarged, improved and marked with elevation and GPS coordinates

  • Any hiking in an area as populated as south and central Ontario calls for caution around drinking groundwater and for this reason we’ve included a new section on how to treat water for drinking

  • As our urban environment expands further into wild territory, we may well come into contact with more wild animals, so we’ve expanded the section on managing bear and coyote encounters

  • How to get to the great outdoors can be a hassle, not to mention expensive, so we’ve included a section on transportation alternatives.
