Enthusiastic writer, performer and radio columnist "Hiker Mike" Kirby takes us along as he explores the best and most unusual hiking trails in and around the geographically disparate Metro Toronto area, encountering all manner of weather and wildlife, history and happenstance, artifact and architecture. A founding member of the Urban Sherpas, Kirby delights in both the energy of the city and the serenity of nature. Eighty-eight hikes within an hour of Toronto, how to get there, where to park, what you'll find along the trail, where to stop for lunch or libation, and how to get home. Includes Hiker Mike's coveted "Secret Map of All Toronto Hikes."

About the Author
Actor, writer and broadcaster, Mike Kirby continues his quest for the "geographical cure." From the jungles of Belize, the Yucatan and downtown Toronto, to the mountains and rainforests of Tobago, Grenada and Canada's west coast, to the high kingdoms of Nepal, Tibet and the Niagara Escarpment, Hiker Mike hits the trail to adventure with a boyish excitement belying his actual boomerish age. He can be heard enthusiastically reporting his own "call of the wild" hikes weekend mornings on CFRB AM1010, Toronto.
