Recently renamed Grace Peak after Grace Hudowalski, the first woman to climb all 46 High Peaks, East Dix is most often summited alongside other peaks in the Dix Range, although it is possible to climb the peak from the east, via Lindsay Brook. One of the few peaks in the Dix Range with an unobstructed view from the summit, the view is well worth the long hike in.
Grouped among and usually summited alongside the other mountains in the Dix range (Macomb, Dix, Hough, and East Dix), South Dix is beautiful in its own right, despite the fact that it is seldom if ever the only peak summited in a day’s hike. South Dix is actually in the process of being renamed to Carson Peak, in commemoration of Russell Carson, a former President of the Adirondack Mountain Club.
Named for one of the Adirondack’s early conservationists, Franklin Hough, this peak is usually hiked in conjunction with the Dix peaks and Macomb.
Macomb is one of the unmarked peaks in the Dix Wilderness, and while easy to hike by itself, it is often hiked in conjunction with the Dix peaks and Hough, particularly given that the trailhead is quite remote.
While one of the more challenging trailed high peaks, Dix promises beautiful views that are just as stunning and slightly more unique than those from Marcy and Algonquin.
