List of mountains in New Hampshire


List of mountains in New Hampshire

List of Mountains in New Hampshire is a general list of the more notable mountains in New Hampshire, with elevation. This list includes many mountains in the White Mountains range that covers about a quarter of the state of New Hampshire, as well as mountains outside of that range.

Some are included in lists of mountains, such as the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) list of the Hundred Highest peaks of New England, or the subset with elevations of over convert|4000|ft — the "4000 Footers". (Many peaks with sufficient elevation are excluded from the AMC lists because they are not considered to have sufficient topographic prominence. An example is the 5,532-foot Mount Clay, 1.1 mile north-northwest along the ridge joining the peak of Mount Washington with that of Mount Jefferson, and rising about 200 feet above the general trend of that ridge.)

The Appalachian Trail (AT), a 2,170-mile (3,500-km) National Scenic Trail from Georgia to Maine, runs through New Hampshire, crossing many of the mountain peaks. Several mountains are the sites of major alpine ski resorts.
