## HighPeaks

### Format

A dataset with 46 observations on the following 6 variables.

 Peak Name of the mountain Elevation Elevation at the highest point (in feet) Difficulty Rating of difficulty of the hike: 1 (easy) to 7 (most difficult) Ascent Vertical ascent (in feet) Length Length of hike (in miles) Time Expected trip time (in hours)

### Details

Forty-six mountains in the Adirondacks of upstate New York are known as the High Peaks with elevations near or above 4000 feet (although modern measurements show a couple of the peaks are actually slightly under 4000 feet). A goal for hikers in the region is to become a "46er" by scaling each of these peaks. This dataset give infomation about the hiking trails up each of these peaks.
