The 40 peaks over 6000 feet in the Southern Appalachians with at least 200 ft prominence or isolation of .75 miles. Includes peaks in North Carolina and Tennessee lying in the Smokies, Plott-Balsams, Great-Balsams, Craggy Mountains, Black Mountains, and Roan Mountains. A true test of navigation skills, about a third of these peaks have no discernable trail to the summit.
