46 Adirondack High Peaks

46 Adirondack High Peaks

By hiking all 46 of these high peaks, you can become an official Adirondack Forty-Sixer.  After completing such an awesome feat, why not get a little credit for it (not to mention bragging rights!)?  As it says on the ADK46er website, "you don't join the Forty-Sixers, you become one by climbing the 46 High Peaks".

 History of the Adirondack Forty-Sixers Inc.

This group is a membership organization which recognizes those who have climbed the 46 High Peaks in the Adirondack Mountains.  Founders Robert and George Marshall, as well as friend and guide Herbert Clark, identified 46 mountains with an elevation of 4,000 feet or higher in what is now the Adirondack State Park. Over a seven year period, ending with their last needed summit in 1925, they were the first to ascend all 46 peaks.  There remains great incentive to continue climbing the 46 today, and in maintaining traditions it is required that correspondence to report your climbs is done in writing and mailed to the Historian of the Adirondack Forty-Sixers.
