Highlights

  • In 1839 Esther McComb, a 15 year old schoolgirl set out to climb Whiteface Mt., but accidentally became the first person to climb Mt. Esther. There is a plaque on the summit in her honor. Esther is often climbed in conjunction with Whiteface, even though it is listed as an unmaintained trail.
