About Thatcher’s Peak Finders
There are lots of great hiking guides for the Adirondacks, but when you reach the summits and overlooks one question still remains: What are we looking at?

Thatcher’s Peak Finders answer that question. Small enough to fit in your day pack, Thatcher’s Peak Finders feature a sturdy plastic rivet that holds the entire deck of line drawings together, allowing individual pages to simply rotate out of the deck like the blade of your favorite pocket knife. The pages’ detailed drawings are created from original photography shot specifically for each peak, so they represent what hikers will typically see without binoculars, and without distortion. Visit to see pictures of the Peak Finder and sample pages.

Thatcher’s Peak Finder for the Northern Adirondacks is also available online for $16.95 US, plus first class / priority shipping to addresses in the U.S. and Canada at
Visitors to the website can also see Google map locations of the ten hikes which include Whiteface, Cascade, Ampersand, St. Regis and 6 other popular day-hike mountains.
