The 46ers

In an immense park known for its Olympic-grade mountains, some peaks still manage to stick out. Over the years, hikers have compiled a list of the 46 highest peaks in the park. Although mountain climbers once believed all 46 were higher than 4,000 feet, we know now that the four shortest are not.

They all make for a good climb, though. And if you’re ambitious and hardy enough to climb all of them, your feat will get you inducted into Adirondack Forty-Sixers Inc. The 46ers club ( promotes conservation and works with the state on projects within the park.

Though many can now claim this accolade, Adirondacks visitors George and Robert Marshall and their guide Herbert Clark became the first to climb the High Peaks in 1925.
