Adirondack High Peaks

Winter View from RedfieldThere are 43 peaks in the Adirondack Mountains with elevations of 4,000 feet or higher. Earlier surveys put the number of high peaks at 46, but more-recent data revealed that four of those peaks (Blake Peak, Cliff and Nye mountains, and Couchsachraga Peak) are actually less than 4,000 feet. MacNaughton Mountain, which was not on the original list of high peaks, was discovered to be 4,000 feet.

For more information about the Adirondack High Peaks, please consult Adirondack Mountain Club: High Peaks Trails and ADK/National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map #742.
