One urban area leads into the next at the eastern end of Lake Ontario. The city of Toronto dominates the landscape for many kilometres in all directions. And, just as you think you have finally left Toronto city traffic behind, you enter one of the large towns that surround the metropolis. Among these are the very pleasant towns of Oakville, Burlington, and above all, Hamilton, which is tucked away at the end of the lake. There are some interesting places to visit along this route, but the real treasures in this part of Ontario are found on the south shore of the lake. Little by little, urban areas give way to vast, furrowed fields and vineyards that grow some very good wine. Finally, you reach the area's most splendid natural attraction, Niagara Falls, which has impressed visitors from all over the world for more than a hundred years. This Trail Guide consists of a series of maps showing multiple biking routes in the Niagara Peninsula and Surrounding Areas."
