SOTA Peaks by Difficulty

These ratings are totally subjective, based on what I think. I am a strong hiker, so some of the peaks I consider medium might be more difficult than I make it sound.
Some peaks are in multiple categories, usually because you could drive up or hike up.

Drive Up

Peaks where you can drive into the activation zone.


Only a short walk required.


Hike is a few miles. I can generally do two to three of this type of peak in a day.


Longer or harder than a "Medium." Off-trail may be required.


Long hikes, or significant off-trail travel required.

Very Hard
