List Description

This list shows the fifty highest peaks in the 48 contiguous United States that are the highest point of a county. Note that this list is peak-based, not county-based. Many of the peaks in the list are the highest point in two counties, but there are still 50 peaks on it even though the number of counties represented is 57.

Many well-known fourteeners are not county high points and do not appear on this list.
