The White Mountain 4000 footer list is maintained by the Appalachian Mountain Club. It was introduced in 1957 to get climbers to hike some of the more remote peaks in the range and to help disperse the wear and tear being inflicted on Mount Washington and a few other very popular peaks.
Hikers who complete the list get to join the 4000 Footer Club and attend an awards dinner. The vast majority of hikers bag their peaks in spring, summer, and fall, but a tiny minority climb them all in winter.
Most of the 4000 footers in the White Mountains are reachable on day hikes, but some are quite remote and require multi-day trips to access. I always like the fact that there on still some places on this earth that you can only get to by walking. All of the peaks on the current list have trails, but a few are not maintained.
Starting to keep track of a second round….
