New England Hundred Highest Mountains: 1976 – 2018

In New England, the tallest peak is Mt. Washington at 6,288 feet. Granted, this is nothing close to the peaks out west in CO, UT and WA. But, it is where I learned to hike and there are some great hikes in ME, NH and VT. My first camping and hiking trips were in NH with good friends Lee Brooks and Bill Knowles in 1976.

Lacking any other goals, in New England we try to get all the 4,000 foot peaks. There are 48 of them in NH, 14 in ME and 5 in VT. A total of 67 peaks over 4,000 feet. In addition to the 4K list, there is the New England Hundred Highest (NE100) list which includes the next 33 peaks that don’t reach 4,000 feet. A number of these peaks do not have defined trails and require some bushwhacking to complete.

Although at the start of my hiking I was not focused on getting all these peaks, I eventually, over 30 years, bagged all the 4K peaks and completed the NE100 list on 07 October 2018. Many years I did not hike at all…other years I might get 2-5 peaks. There was not pattern or push to get them all done, it was just a nice long-term goal and it forced you to try different hikes.

There is also the Grid, which is doing all the 4,000 foot peaks and doing each of them in every month of the year. So, 67 peaks times 12 months. You can do this at your leisure although I believe more than one person has done it in one year.

Anyway, now you know what the New England 4,000 footer and 100 highest clubs are!
