Rate this:

Collected here, for the first time, are the best hiking routes in the National Capital Region, including Gatineau Park, Ottawa's Greenbelt, brand new trails at Manitou Mountain, and Eastern Ontario's most outstanding provincial parks (Frontenac, Charleston, and Murphy's Point), as well as gems hidden in the neighbouring Canadian Shield and Laurentian Highlands.

All fifty routes are located within a roughly 100-km radius of Ottawa, all within easy reach. Michael Haynes provides GPS coordinates to the trailheads and cell phone coverage gaps on each trail, and his "Trails at a Glance" section highlights each route's length, suggested completion time, permitted uses, entry fee, and degree of difficulty (ranging from easy walks to demanding hikes), as well as information on the conditions under which pets may or may not be permitted.

I agree that this book is great and contains a LOT of information on the individual trails; however, I would better enjoy it while out hiking ong the trails. It is very detailed and think that it's a book better owned than borrowed.

Great listings of Ottawa best trails. I personally love the Wolf Trail and highly recommend. Pink Lake is a fabulous one if you are short on time.

I like that it also lists what trails are available in the winter for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

could have been great but I found this book is useful only as a detailed guide while on the trails - very detailed about the trails themselves.
Decent directions on how to get to trails and lots of places to hike but overall I found the book disappointing and not as useful as I had hoped.

It's all local, so you don't have to drive far. The "beyonds" go as far as the St Lawrence River and up on the Quebec side. However, government topographical maps are also suggested.
