  • The southern reaches of Ontario contain the vibrant, cosmopolitan heart of Canada, boasting major cities like Hamilton, London and Toronto, the sights of Niagara Falls, and natural attractions such as Wasaga Beach, the world's largest freshwater beach. This Southern Ontario backcountry map book guides your way through the region that is home to Ontario's largest established trail network, hundreds of public parks and conservation areas, the popular Bruce Peninsula, and some of Ontario's most accessible river paddling routes. All of this is just a stone's throw from Canada's most populous region. Let your Southern Ontario backcountry map book show you where to hike, camp, fish, paddle, ski, snowshoe and much more, for outdoor adventures that you will not forget!
