The Northeast Peaks

Welcome to our hiking log of Peaks in the Northeast region. Originally focussed on the 4000 foot summits in New Hampshire's White Mountains, we've expanded our peakbagging to include summits from the region - the Adirondacks, Catskills, Green and Longfellow ranges - and some of the peakbagger 'lists' including the 52 with a view, the New England 67, the Northeast 111, and the New England highest 100 lists.

Click on the Map Legend to filter the map pins, or check out the links to SummitPost, Peakbagger, the AMC sites, and our blog entries for peak information and our routes and experiences.

Why are some 4000-foot peaks not on these list?

To qualify for the list, a peak must rise 200 feet above any ridge connecting it to a higher neighbor. As a result, several notable peaks (including Clay, Guyot and the south peak of Moosilauke) are not included on the lists despite their height.

Determinations are made according to the most current USGS topographical maps and peaks have been added to or deleted from the lists as newer maps became available. (By contrast, the Adirondack 46ers, which were developed using different criteria, do not change in response to updated surveys).

Why are there 115 peaks in a '111' list?

The Northeastern States of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine contain 111 peaks over 4,000 feet in elevation and an additional four peaks in New York's Adirondack Mountains that were once believed to stand over 4,000 feet tall. Together these peaks make up the list officially known as the 111ers of the Northeastern USA but more popularly known as the Northeast 115.

This list includes 115 peaks but is still referred to as the "Northeast 111" because that name predates the additions of Galehead Mountain and Bondcliff in New Hampshire, as well as Mount Redington and Spaulding Mountain in Maine, due to later surveys determining they do rise to 4,000 feet (1,219.2 m) and satisfy topographic prominence requirements.

52 With a View

Some years back, a group of over the hill hikers formulated a list of some of the most rewarding view hikes in New Hampshire on peaks with elevations below 4,000 feet. When combined with the forty-eight 4000-footers, this list represented what the OTHH’s considered the best 100 hikes in our mountains. Thus the “52 With a View” list was born.

Our current tally of the 52 WAV list is 12 of the 52.
