    High Peaks Region Topo Map (Sample Portion: Fourpeaks Area.) In the midst of over 3,000 acres of New York State and private forest lands with no access except for Stonehouse Road, Fourpeaks is miles away from development of any kind. The topographic representation show the "Hidden Valley" character at Fourpeaks, with four moderate mountain peaks close by (Bassett, Wainwright, Ebenezer and Rattlesnake Knob) . An ideal protected site for early settlers. Seven families lived here during the last century. The schoolhouse was at the bottom of the hill. Homesites still marked by open fields and cellars. See them at Sugar Camp, Boughton Field, Farmhouse Field and on the road to Ridge Camp. Compare this with Fourpeaks Topo Map.

    More Adirondack Maps are available at The Mountaineer in Keene Valley and may be ordered by phone. (See email below.)

    Martin;

    There are 7 maps published by Plinth, Quoin and Cornice Associates. Six of
    the maps, High Peaks, West-Central Wilderness Area, Central Mountains, Lake
    George Region, Northwest Lakes and the Canoe map, are all in the scale of
    1:62,500. These six maps are all 7 1/2" x 8 3/4" folded and Unfold to a size
    of 44 1/2" x 35". The Canoe map is double sided, one side is the Fulton
    Chain of Lakes and the opposite side is The Saint Regis Canoe area. These
    maps were last undated in 1983.

    The 7th map is called "The Adirondack Park". The folded size is 8 1/2" x
    11". The unfolded size is 44" x 33 1/2". This map shows the entire park,
    public and private land as 1986. The scale is 1:200,000. The Price of maps
    are $5.50 Plus shipping. I think anyone interested in purchasing any of the
    maps should call the shop at (518) 576-2281, and we will be happy to answer
    any questions and take an order.

    Thanks,

A fire on Basset Mountain in the early 60's left a network of fire roads as well. Salvage harvesting after the great Ice Storm in January '98 improved access to the higher elevations. Fourpeaks 4 mountains (Bassett, Wainwright, Rattlesnake and Ebenezer) are friendly 2,000-foot peaks which can provide hours and days of pleasant discovery for both the seasoned hiker and everyday walker--afoot, or on snowshoes or skis! Trails lead to summits and ridges with river, valley and mountain views, and to beauty spots worth visiting. For a private experience you don't have to drive to--away from the crowds on overused public trails.
