Waterfalls of Ontario is an ideal travel guide to, and celebration in pictures of, the province's most beautiful falls. This expanded edition includes two new sections: "Northeastern Ontario" covers Sudbury, North Bay and the northern cottage country, and "Hamilton" gives the recently dubbed City of Waterfalls its own section, featuring new falls, new photos and new and updated information.

The book also covers waterfalls in these regions:

  • Algoma
  • Cottage Country
  • Golden Horseshoe
  • Lake Huron
  • Ottawa Valley

Each waterfall is featured on a two-page spread that includes a full-page color photograph and a concise description with details of historical interest. The author also now includes GPS coordinates in addition to driving directions to help waterfall enthusiasts find their way. Other practical information includes geological features and updated regional maps. Sidebars feature handy at-a-glance information, such as the nearest settlement, walk time, trail conditions and the size of the fall. A notes section, "Other Waterfalls," describes nearby falls of interest.

Packed with gorgeous new photographs and updated information, Waterfalls of Ontario is an outstanding regional travel guide for weekend explorers, fans of waterfalls, visitors of all kinds and armchair travelers.
