With its secret revealed, the Hamilton region quickly became known as the "Waterfall Capital of the World." Hikers made tracks to take a look, only to discover that the area offers more, much more. The latest in the Loops & Lattes series of hiking guides, Hamilton and Area Hikes: Loops & Lattes, will help you explore the countryside as well as the towns and villages throughout the city of Hamilton and the County of Brant. Directing you to spectacular vistas, historic villages, fascinating wetlands and flowing rivers, it describes routes ranging from 2.5km to 23.5km that mostly start and end at the same location. Each of the 34 hikes is accompanied by a detailed map, precise directions, loads of colour photos, a smattering of local lore, and suggestions about what do to après-hike. Lattes, anyone?
