BEST HIKES: OTTAWA-GATINEAU by VICKIE LANTHIER
From Vickie Lanthier — the creator of GirlGoneGood© Wellness + Wilderness — comes Best Hikes: Ottawa Gatineau, a comprehensive guide to 50 of the best hiking trails around the nation’s capital.
Lanthier has organized the trails into ten categories and chosen her five favourites in each.
Want to know where the best waterfalls, towers, or accessible trails are? How about which trails are best for birders, geocaching, or hiking with your dog? Curious about where you can catch a spectacular sunrise? Or maybe you'd like to know where the nearest cozy coffee shop is located post-hike? Best Hikes offers the best scoop about hiking trails in the Ottawa region.
With extensive reports for each trail, you can pick your perfect hike. Two hours out and back or a twenty-minute loop? A challenging elevation or a marshland boardwalk? A vista or a beach as your destination?
Each trail report is accompanied by a map and a table of information that includes length, elevation, seasons, hours of operation, accessibility, services, and amenities. The maps also include a QR code that will take you to the trail manager’s site if you wish further information.
A long-overdue resource for hikers in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec, Best Hikes: Ottawa-Gatineau will quickly become your favourite outdoor adventure guide.
