A new list of Ontario's highest elevations places 2 of the top 3 peaks in Temagami. No surprise that the Ishpatina Ridge peak at the fire tower tops no pun intended the list. But the second peak, previously unrecognized, is also on Ishpatina Ridge and it is the third highest.

  FULL LIST:  Ontario's Top 25 Peaks

Maple Mountain, considerably better known than Ishpatina and often mistaken for the highest, ranks thirteenth. But when ranked by vertical rise it is the highest of the top 25 peaks. See the full list compiled by Brian Back of Ottertooth.com.
