Nicola Ross latest hiking guide

If you are looking for a Christmas gift for your hiking friends, Nicola Ross, author of the Loops & Latte series of hiking guides in Southern Ontario, has a fundraising offer for the Avon Trail that you should consider.

Her latest hiking guide is titled “Waterloo, Wellington & Guelph Hikes: Loops & Lattes”. This hiking guide book, the 5th in the series, describes 35 hiking routes, ranging in length from 2.4 km to 22 km. The guide is a popular seller at  book shops this season.

Many of these trails are found in and around the Waterloo, Woolwich and Guelph area.  Some extend to Cambridge, Erin, Rockwood, Palmerston and Harriston. Several also follow parts of the Avon Trail, too.

This guide retails for $27.95 plus 5% tax and shipping.

Nicola will donate $5 to the Avon Trail for every copy purchased online of this hiking guide or any of the other four in the series.

Books ordered  before or on December 15 will arrive in time for Christmas.

To take advantage of this offer to support the Avon Trail:

  1. Click on Loops & Lattes.
  2. Choose the guide(s) you would like to purchase.
  3. Proceed to the checkout and fill in the Billing Information.
  4. When you arrive at Shipping Information, there is an Order Notes (optional) box.
  5. Write “Avon Trail” in this box.
  6. Complete your transaction.

This donation offer applies only to online purchases of these hiking guides.

Nicola will ship your book(s) to you and let you know that she received your request to donate to Avon Trail.

I encourage your support in this way. Nicola’s guides make for great gifts, and this is the gift-giving season.
