Highlights

  • Hough Peak is one of the four peaks in the Dix Range which are reached by unmaintained trails. (The others are Grace Peak, South Dix, and Macomb.) It is named for Franklin B. Hough, sometimes called the "father of American Forestry", since he was the first chief of the U.S. Division of Forestry.
