Named Summits per State

September 5, 2008 at 3:38 pm 2 comments

If you’re planning to polish off Cheeseburgers on every summit in your home state, depending on where you live you might be taking on a BIG challenge. The number of named summits in each state is illustrated below (thanks again to Many Eyes). Most of the summit data comes from the USGS web site but summitcheese hikers have added others that the USGS does not deem official.


It’s quite surprising, but there seem to be more named summits in states with major mountain ranges.

    interesting that Mass has almost as many named summits as Utah… no major mountain ranges here though, which either means the summits are more accessible to the less-fit hiker, or that a lot more trespassing will be involved…

    Take advice from Woody Guthrie and the forgotten lines of “This Land is Your Land”

    “as I was wandering, I saw a sign and, on that sign it, said No Trespassing; but on the other side, it didn’t say anything…that side was made for you and me”
