The Canadian Highpoints are wild and wonderful places of snow and ice, deep forests, crystalline waters, and ultimate wilderness. Those who challenge these summits will need perseverance, but the reward will be more than worth the effort.
The articles found on the Highpoint List page are written as a guide to the 13 Highpoints of Canada. The most common route to each summit will be described. While certain people are mentioned this is not meant to be just a record of any particular person's achievements, but a guide to give information and inspiration to those that plan to visit some or all of Canada's Highpoints.
