Waterfalls of Ontario: Revised and Expanded Featuring Over 125 Waterfalls (Paperback)
Praise for previous editions:
"A very practical guidebook to exploring 80 different provincial waterfalls... A coffee table book on one hand, a guidebook on the other... nicely balanced, organized and provocative." --Toronto Star
"It's rare to have a book that's so user friendly, packed with information yet beautiful enough to hold its own on the coffee table with any photography tome. A must-read for anyone touring the countryside." --Kitchener-Waterloo Record
Waterfalls of Ontario is the definitive guide to enjoying and exploring the province's most beautiful falls. Packed with full-page color photographs, this third edition adds a new section covering the area north of Lake Superior to Thunder Bay. Additional waterfall visits have also been added for other areas of the province, giving the reader 27 more new places to discover. Adventure awaits at new hotspots like Kakabeka Falls, Mink Creek Falls, Kap Kig Iwan Falls and Pigeon River High Falls.
The book also covers waterfalls in these regions:
- Cottage Country

Each waterfall is featured with a full-color photograph and text describing the characteristics, history and geography. Accurate driving directions and GPS coordinates leave the reader with easy ways to visit each waterfall for themselves. Sidebars feature handy at-a-glance information, such as the nearest settlement, walk time, trail conditions and the size of the fall. Even more waterfalls can be discovered in the "Other Waterfalls" sections, as well as in an updated provincial inventory.
