Directions / Trip Summary:
Ryan’s Mountain, the highest point in Renfrew County was the site of a Pinetree Line radar base which closed in 1974. The community of Foymount is located along the slopes of the peak, a short distance from the summit. There is no hiking required to ascend this high point, as a road travels right to the top.
Ryan’s Mountain lies 60 km northeast of Bancroft. Make your way to Foymount, eventually ending up on County Road 512. Turn onto Sebastopol Drive which climbs the hill through the community of Foymount. 750 meters from County Road 512, turn left onto Lawrence Road and complete the 300 meter drive to the summit.
Remains of the Pinetree Line radar base buildings as well as towers and their support buildings dot the flattened hilltop. A small hill built around one of the tower cable supports appears to be the highest point.
