Hiking journal and peak-bagging list


Peak bagging is the sport of summiting each peak in a mountain range or published list of peaks; the end goal is to have summited every peak in the list. I am not one to adhere strongly to a set list, but I do like peak bagging as a way to discover new hikes. It's also a great excuse to go travel!

Adirondack 46ers

Nestled in upstate New York, the Adirondacks are home to the state's largest peaks! The Adirondacks are some of the most remote wilds you can get in the northeast. Compared to the Whites, Adirondack hikes are significantly longer and more rugged!

Catskill 3500

The Catskills are a sprawling mountain range east of Binghamton, New York. The Catskill 3500 challenge is well known by many as it attempts to summit the largest peaks in the range, but it has some quirks. It used to be that there were thirty-five 3500' peaks, quite easy to remember, but an updated geological survey revealed that Rocky Mountain was actually slightly shorter than 3500'. More recently, two of the peaks, Graham and Doubletop, each located on private property, were closed to the public permanently. This brings the list of true, climbable 3500'ers down to 32. This list contains 33, as it still includes Rocky Mountain.
