The objective is to climb to the summit of the 500 highest peaks of New Hampshire.
Patches are awarded for the 200 highest (actually 203 highest), the 300 highest (actually 307), 2000 footers (472 peaks), and the 500 highest.
The reason for this is the elevation. The 200 highest list includes all peaks over 2900 feet. The 300 highest list includes all peaks over 2400 feet.

Addendum - Delisted Peaks
* Note #1 - There is no Official NH 500 List.
This is a best effort approximation researched and developed by Bryan Cuddihee.
An addendum for this list provides additional options, possibilities, and "delisted" peaks visited over the years.
This web page honors all finishers, past & future, of all versions of this list.
*Note #2 -
As stated there are other versions of this list.
They are shared selectively and with some exclusivity.
This version of the list is meant to be shared by all.

*Note #4 - This web page and this list is a "work-in-progress".
It will occasionally be "tweaked" with additions/subtractions,
name changes, etc. We welcome input & discussion from "All".
