The AMC's List of New England's 4,000 Footers

Here is the list of 4,000 foot mountains in New England as published by the AMC in the 26th edition of the White Mountain Guide. Some revisions to the list has taken place since the Guide was last published in 1992. In New Hampshire, Wildcat E. was replaced by Wildcat D, while in Maine, Redington and Spaulding were added to the list. The total number of 4,000 footers in New England now stand at 67. Other, more minor changes have taken place: the order of mountains listed in New Hampshire has been updated to reflect changes in elevation. For whatever reason, the order of the mountains in Maine has not been updated for this purpose; the list you see here is in the exact order that it appears in the White Mountain Guide. The 4000 Footer Committe uses only USGS maps to determine elevation, and for peaks where no specific elevation is provided on the map, the elevation has been estimated by adding half the contour interval to the highest contour shown. I have kept a copy of the previous list so that comparisons can be made.

If you are interested, here is the criteria for being considered a 4,000 foot peak. If a mountain below appears as a hypertext link, that simply means that I have already climbed that particular peak, and if you click on the link, it will send you to a page that notes the date of my ascent.
