The number of hikers who have climbed to and from the summits of the Granite State’s 48 recognized 4000-foot peaks and are members of the AMC’s White Mountain Four Thousand Footer Club recently surpassed 10,000, according to Four Thousand Footer Committee Chair Eric Savage.
As noted in the AMC White Mountain Guide, 29th edition, "The Four Thousand Footer Club was formed in 1957 to bring together hikers who had traveled to some of the less frequently visited sections of the White Mountains."
The Four Thousand Footer Committee, which is composed entirely of volunteers, currently receives and processes between 300 and 350 applications for the White Mountain Four Thousand Footer Club each year. Read full press release >>
