List Description

Canada has some spectacular and world-famous National Parks in well-known mountain areas, and this list is a first draft listing the highest points in all 42 current parks and reserves. In parks with boundaries that contain private land that has not yet been acquired by Parks Canada, the high point listed is the highest point on public land. For parks in Ontario or British Columbia, the provincial OBM and BC Basemap topographic data was used to find points, and for the remainder of the country, the NTS 1:50K map sheets were used.

Note that in several national parks, the terrain can be quite flat, and the spot listed here may not be entierly accurate. Indeed, for some parks, it may be impossible to determine the exact high point without professional surveying. If you are serious about a peak on this list, you should double-check the high point location with your own research before your trip.

This is a challenging list to complete--it would not be surprising if no one person climbs all these peaks for many years, if ever. You should check with park rangers to make sure that these points are open to the general public and get saftely information. Many of the peaks on this list are challenging and remote wilderness adventures that may feature technical mountaineering.


Thanks to Terry Wheeler of Montreal, who helped determine several of these points and inspired the completion of the research for this list.
