Highest point in King Township

The highest point of land in King Township sits on the north-east corner of Dufferin Street and the 18th Sideroad (above), a couple of kilometres north of Snowball.   Not only is this the highest piece of land in King, at 364 metres (1194 ft.), but it is punctuated by a Bell Canada tower that soars another 45 metres (148 ft.) above that.   Three locations are tied for the second highest place  (360 metres) in King.They include the location of the Doppler Radar tower just east of Hwy. 400 above the 16th Sideroad, a site just north of the Catholic Settlement on Jane Street, and Love Mountain in the Happy Valley area between the 6th and 7th Concessions of King and just north of the Green Lane.   Third place goes to Thornton Bales Park on the 19th Sideroad between Dufferin and Bathurst Streets at 359 metres.   Below is a summertime photo of the Bell tower.
