Never-Ending Bucket List of Hiking Trails in Ontario - Merely McCool

The Never-Ending Bucket List of Trails

This page hosts a running list of hiking trails that I plan to visit. As I cross them off my list, a link to the blog post will be added. This will pretty much never end, as I am continuously finding new hiking trails to explore, or having them recommended to me. Hopefully this will keep me more organized, so I can more easily find my next destination!
