Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine recently published their list of the Top Summits in the Appalachian Mountains, "the pinnacles of outdoor adventure".
The list was put together with a bit of a swist. It's not just about hiking to the summit of each of these mountains. The magazine put together a list of mountains that offer several ways to enjoy them; such as biking, backpacking, racing, climbing, camping, paddling and even swimming on them.
Here's their list:
