The 100 Highest

I also have an unofficial page listing the 100 highest mountains in Vermont.

The Four Thousand Footers Committee of the Appalachian Mountain Club maintains an official list of the 100 highest mountains in New England. They also maintain official lists of all mountains in New Hampshire over 4000 feet and all mountains in New England over 4000 feet. To be included on these lists the mountain must satisfy certain, specific criteria. If you climb and descend on foot all of these mountains at some point during your lifetime, you can become a member of the New England 100 highest club Club. When you complete all the climbs you must submit to the Four Thousand Footers Committee of the AMC the dates of each climb, a list of your companions (if any) on each climb, and any personal comments that you might have about each climb.

It is my hope to one day be a member of the New England 100 Highest Club. I'm planning to keep the information required for each climb here on the web.

Additional information about many of these mountains can be found on the Hike the Whites site.

The Official List

The mountains are sorted in descending order of elevation. All elevations shown are in feet above sea level. Mountains that I have climbed are shown linked to my personal comments.

Note: This list is old and should be updated. As more accurate information becomes available (due to the creation of new maps), the exact heights of these mountains are often adjusted. Furthermore some peaks that didn't make it to the list at first are then found to meet the necessary criteria while some peaks that were on the list are sometimes found to no longer meet the necessary criteria.
