Iroquois Peak

Iroquois Peak

One of the highest of the 46ers, Iroquois is an easy peak to bag if you head out to climb Algonquin, since the most popular route up Iroquois requires climbing Algonquin to get there. While that makes the hike a longer one, it’s well worth it for the views from both peaks, and is of course a must if you’re looking to score your 46.

Trail Stats

Distance: 10.2 miles round-trip

Elevation: 4,840 ft

Follow the route to Algonquin. Then, after summiting Algonquin, you will follow the herd path straight ahead to Boundary and Iroquois. Following the herd path, the trail quickly and steeply climbs to the top of Boundary Peak in .2 miles. From there the trail descends over open rock and then climbs steeply to the top of Iroquois, a short half mile from the top of Boundary. From there, you’ll retrace your steps back over Boundary and Algonquin to return.

Goodman Mountain
Goodman Mountain

A gradual hike up to an open summit, Goodman Mountain is a nice, gradual hike for families and dogs, or those looking to get in a moderate hike with a good view from the top. While the view is well worth the trip up, the trail up Goodman is also beautiful, weaving through hardwood forests and opening up to a couple of vistas along the way.
