Over 3 miles SW of the Eastern Peak which is more in the path of the day hikers in the state lands, the actual peak shown is NOT the peak given in the local hiking guides (see Keene for eg.) where they use the USGS peak 2,126. Sub peak 2,126 and the Western Peak 2,113 are shorter than the true peak (by several contour intervals)which lies just NE of USGS peak 2126.

Just west of this triad of subpeaks is another un-named mountain range that runs in a NW direction away from Little Notch Pond that is slightly taller. The next nearest highest neighbor is in this bearing on a feature we will identify as Notch Pond Peak as it is just off the NE alignment of what the USGS shows as the Little Moose Mountain Range.

NNHN = Little Notch Pond Peak = 2220
