confidence to turn off the beaten track? Then turn to SideRoad GuideBooks for
inspiration. These self-directed guides are designed for people wishing to
experience the beauty and charm of rural Ontario. The books are small enough to
keep in your glove compartment.
Each GuideBook includes pictures and tourist information about the countryside travelled through. While all tours start and finish in towns or at major intersections, you decide whether to complete the suggested tour in one day or do only part of the journey.
Designed for a driver and a navigator, your confidence to explore will develop through the use of the Guidebook's handy Number System. Numbers appear both in driving instructions and on the map. Each number refers to the same intersection. Thus the driving instructions in the text are united with the maps.
With any Number you will be provided with:
Table of Contents:
This is an area of the Moraine which is not so well known as the western part. You will travel through hilly farmland interspersed with woodlots and small settlements. It has been the subject of much recent controversy. STORM (Save the Oak Ridges Moraine) was founded in 1989 to direct development away from the Moraine. The Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Act was passed in 2001. This legislation defined what could be developed; this was followed in 2005 with the Greenbelt Act.
Public land on the Moraine is generally administered by one of the nine Conservation Authorities. Other land is held by the Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust. This land has been willed or gifted to preserve it.
The Oak Ridges Trail Association has developed and maintains a 250 km hiking trail along the Moraine.
