Where’s the peak of Silver Peak

Footing of former tower visible just above the orange NalgeneSomeone posted a comment on my recent trip report wondering where indeed is the highest point in Silver Peak. Apparently there used to be a fire tower on top of it? And the tower footings mark the highest point. At the end of the Silver Peak trail section there are some concrete footings. I’m not sure they’re from a fire tower - they don’t seem far enough apart, compared to those still around at Maple Mountain and Ishpatina Ridge. But they’re for some kind of tower. One is visible in this photo.

The North Boundary Loop

I just got back from the longest canoe trip I've ever done. Ten days, 109km and a couple dozen portages through Killarney Park, just south of Sudbury, in Ontario's Near North. Read the report.
