Highpoints of Canada


Highpointers Club  -  http://highpointers.org/

The purpose of the Highpointers Club is to promote climbing to the highest point in each of the fifty (50) states; provide a forum for education about the highpoints; aid in the preservation and conservation of the highpoints and their environs; provide a vehicle through which persons with this common goal can meet and correspond with one another; maintain positive relationships with owners of highpoints on private property; assist in the care and maintenance of highpoints; and support public and private efforts to maintain the integrity of and access to state highpoints.

"Not Won in a Day - Climbing Canada's Highpoints" - Jack Bennett

Currently the only print guide to the Canadian Highpoints.  This was published in 1999 by Rocky Mountain Books.  Most of the info is still accurate (the Highpoints haven't moved) and it is the most valuable resource available (besides common sense and experience), but as always check with other sources to confirm access issues, alternate routes, cost and current conditions.
Most of the text on this website are authored by Jack Bennett and originally appeared in the Highpointers Club newsletters from  Fall 2009 to Spring 2010.
Also Check out Jack's other book "Dream Hikes Coast to Coast" published by Menasha Ridge in 2010.

Wildlife Wonders - Home of North Georgia Zoo and Paradise Valley Farms

Home of the only known Gibbon with 3 U.S. Highpoints.
While not directly Highpoint related this zoo facility owned by highpointers Tom and Hope Bennett is within 30 minutes of Brasstown Bald, the highpoint of GA, and a great place to visit while in the area.
