The mega-classic Adirondack challenge. First created in the 1920s, it includes New York's 46 Adirondack peaks over 4,000 ft high with at least 300 ft of prominence. Subsequent surveys have found 4 of the peaks to be lower and 1 excluded peak to be higher (MacNaughton, not included in peakery) but the challenge remains unchanged due to tradition. A unique aspect to this challenge is that 20 peaks are "trailless", i.e., without an officially maintained trail to the summit. A 4 hour drive from the heart of NYC and just 2 hours from Montreal.
