New Hampshire Trail 3000

This page tracks progress on Eric Savage’s T3000 list. This list builds on the NH 4k one by adding those peaks that are at least 3000’ tall, are reached by a trail, and either rise 100’ from their surroundings or have a name. There’s a little more nuance to the rules, which you can see at the link above. The fact that all these are on trails makes for a more interesting list than some of the others which require a lot of bushwhacking to reach.

The list

For peaks that are more obscure (most of the ones below the 4000’ers), I’ve provided brief notes on where the peak is and how to get to it. I don’t want to give complete routes, as some of these are bushwhacks and part of the point is finding your own way. Coordinates are given by clicking on each summit’s name.

Please don’t trust the map links too much, though. I know for a fact that many of the trails on these online topo maps either do not exist or have been moved, and there are other trails that do exist but are not shown. Get your own updated map to the region before going out there.

I am only keeping track of my first ascent of each here. I keep more detailed records of every hike including who came along, what trails we took, and so on.
