To appeal to all abilities and experiences, we have added a new component to 48 Peaks called the Create Your Own Challenge. We encourage you to hike within your comfort level whether that’s picking a scenic hike from the 52 With A View List, hiking out in the Berkshires in MA, or challenging yourself to many of the unique challenges in the White Mountains (ex: Pemi Loop, Presidential Traverse, Appalachian Trail through NH, Moats Traverse, etc.). Check out these links below to learn about several options we suggest and where to learn more! Then, when you’ve decided, fill out the Peak Selection form below to share your plans with us!
