How to Join the Adirondack Forty-Sixers
What is the Adirondack Forty-Sixers, Inc.? From their website:
The Adirondack Forty-Sixers, Inc. is a membership organization that recognizes those who have climbed the 46 High Peaks in the Adirondack Mountains in northern New York State with an elevation of 4,000 feet or higher. The mountain elevations are based on the figures listed in Russell M. L. Carson’s book Peaks and People of the Adirondacks that was published in 1927. While subsequent geological surveys have indicated that four of the peaks are less than 4,000 feel, the club uses the original measurements as the basis for membership.
The Adirondack Forty-Sixers is a separate organization from ADK (Adirondack Mountain Club). Many climbers choose to become members of both organizations. ADK and many of its chapters offer hikes to the High Peaks. Check out current offerings on the ADK calendar. Please see the Adirondack Forty-Sixers website for more information on becoming a 46er.
