What is Peak-Bagging?

The sport of Peak Bagging attracts hikers to come to the White Mountains of NH, as well as Maine and Vermont with a goal of reaching the summit of multiple mountain peaks in one hike, and the White Mountains is an excellent area to partake in this sport.

Peak Bagging is also called other names: Hill Bagging, Mountain Bagging and just Bagging. Many traditional hikers tend to argue that peak bagging is, in a way, cheating if the final goal is to say you hiked a specific list of mountains (such as the 4,000 Footers). They argue that the true experience of hiking a mountain should be from the ground to the summit and down, rather than summit to summit, and that each mountain individually should be hiked up and down if they are trying to cross off mountains on their list. Other peak baggers are quite the opposite and feel however a summit is reached (hike, drive, gondola ride), it counts.

Excellent mountains to peak bag together for one or multiple-day hikes are:

Carter Dome, Carter Middle and Carter South (14.8 miles loop hike)

North Kinsman Mountain with South Kinsman Mountain (8.4 miles)
Bondcliff with Mount Bond and West Bond (22.6 miles)

NOTE: This website is not indicating what mountains you personally can hike together. It is suggesting mountains that CAN be hiked with other mountains when conditions such as weather, your physical condition and your health, are in your favor. Only you can decide if a hike (or peak bag hike) is right for you. A long hike to one person might be 7 miles, but to another it can be 25 miles. Plan accordingly.
