The book also covers waterfalls in these regions:

  • AlgomaCottage 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.
