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, each Thatcher’s Peak Finder has a sturdy plastic rivet that holds the 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. Adirondack High Peaks are highlighted with their height and historic rank. Visit for more information and to purchase Thatcher’s Peak Finders.

This and other Thatcher’s Peak Finders are also available through Eastern Mountain Sports’ Adirondack-area stores, Adirondack Mountain Club stores at Adirondack Loj and Lake George, Adirondack Museum stores at Blue Mountain Lake and Lake Placid, The Mountaineer in Keene Valley, and during the summer at the summit store at Whiteface Mountain.
