Ontario High Points is my attempt to bring awareness of Ontario’s hiking destinations, but with a twist; this site will highlight the ‘peaks’ of Ontario.
Peaks in Ontario you ask? Ok, so Ontario isn’t the alpine mecca you’ve read about and seen, but there are some remote destinations and rewarding vistas awaiting to be discovered.
I am a resident of Ontario, a peakbagger veteran of the Adirondacks (46er) and Northeast Appalachians (111er). I have done a lot of hiking in Ontario, and hope to shortly complete the Bruce Trail and Oak Ridge Trail end-to-end. However, I’ve often ventured out of province to summit peaks, as I never thought that my home province had much to offer in this regard. That changed after I hiked Silver Peak and then read about Ontario’s Highest point: the Ishpatina Ridge. I then stumbled across a list of Peaks of Ontario and decided that I had to do something about it.
This site will document my planning, routes, and most importantly my journeys to the often remote and beautiful high points of Ontario.
