Also known as the "46ers", the Adirondack High Peaks consist of the mountains originally believed to be over 4,000 feet in elevation. Later surveying proved that some of the peaks were under this elevation, but to stay with tradition, they weren't removed from the original list. Today, the High Peaks are a popular hiking destination for many.
Adirondack Fire Towers
There are 24 fire tower observatories in the Adirondack Park. Once used as a lookout point for forest fires, today the towers offer a great vantage point for hikers to get some great views of the surrounding wilderness.
Beyond the High Peaks and fire towers, there are still several hiking options located throughout the Adirondack Park.
