For residents and visitors alike, Toronto can seem far away from nature. However, it's much easier to escape the city than one might think. Nature Hikes is a beautifully illustrated guidebook that leads the way to 56,000 acres of Ontario's most compelling natural features. This new edition is completely revised and updated to reflect recent changes to conservation areas.

The book features 33 conservation areas in all, including the five most accessible conservation authority preserves near Toronto -- Credit Valley, Nottawasaga Valley, Toronto and Region, Lake Simcoe Region and Central Lake Ontario -- which provide access to natural attractions such as:
  • Bird meccas
  • Secret wildlife spots
  • Excellent fishing holes
  • Incredible hiking and biking trails
  • Breathtaking vistas
Nature Hikes is a must-have guide for groups and individuals who love wild places and the special creatures that live there. Each chapter covers a conservation area with stunning colour photography, detailed directions and maps, complete trail and activity information and notes on flora and fauna. Numerous amusing anecdotes from those who have been there are sure to inspire readers to explore for themselves.
