Paddling & Hiking the Georgian Bay Coast
In her second guidebook, Kas Stone explores the ruggedly beautiful coastal landscape of Georgian Bay, Ontario’s “Sixth Great Lake,” with an eye to accessible adventure. The 38 excursions in this book take you on hiking routes ranging from scenic hour-long strolls to more breathtaking climbs, and on day-long or multi-day (but portage-free!) paddling expeditions. Each chapter includes a wealth of practical information and trip-planning advice, maps and other useful resources. To whet the appetite for adventure, the book contains tantalizing photographs and tales from the Bay’s fascinating natural and human history.
“This is it. A guidebook that you have to own!… An instant classic… [it] sets the new bar in regional guidebooks. The route information is good to excellent. The background history is wonderful, and the photos just make you want to go paddling.” (Blue Mountains Courier-Herald, 2008-08-13)
