    Mt. Adams, (5774 feet) and Mt Jefferson (5712 feet) are on the AT, neighbors of Mt. Washington.

    Do you have a list of the State High Points that the Appalachian trail goes over?

    After today’s TravelChannel article about the UK (see below), I came here to see how the AT mountains compared. Also had to look up Mount Katahdin to compare:

    Mount Katahdin is the highest mountain in Maine at 5,269 feet. Named Katahdin by the Penobscot Indians, which means “The Greatest Mountain”, Katahdin is the centerpiece of Baxter State Park.

    Stand at the Top of the U.K.
    A few minutes down the road from Fort William is the trailhead for Ben Nevis. Standing at 4,411 feet, it’s the tallest point in the U.K. Spend an afternoon hiking the steep terrain to the summit, where the remains of an old observatory provide shelter from strong winds. For those with alpine experience, there are also a number of climbing and ice-climbing routes that lead up the north face of the mountain.
