If your idea of a good outing is to walk along trails that take you deep into forests of towering maples, ash and basswoods, by farmer fields green with corn and golden with wheat, across kames and kettles high on the Oak Ridges Moraine, close to crystal streams and waterfalls that crash over the Niagara Escarpment, as well as down quiet country roads that pass by century-old stone and brick houses, then Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes is for you. If you are attuned to stopping for a frosty pint or a hot coffee en route, then Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes is for you too. If your genetic makeup spurns walking in and out along the same trail, it would be best that you crack open a copy of Caledon’s first-ever and only dedicated hiking guide. And if you abhor the bother of a car drop, then you’d better pick up your copy of Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes right now. It will keep you and your house guests entertained for hours, and not just because it offers so many hiking options but because it also gives you tidbits of useful and interesting information: Who was Glen Haffy? What is the Devil’s Pulpit? Where is the best place to look for trilliums? When do the spring peepers peep? Where can I pick up home-baked cookies or a cream-cheese-laden bagel en route? What festivals are celebrated in which village and when? And after the hike is done, the route will take you right back to where you began. The circle is complete.
