Name, Height, Mt., Rating, Field of View, Crowd Factor, How to get there, difficulty rating
Split Rock Mt.(New Russia) 1,959 *** ~180, DS,B, X Great Views South Towards the Dix Range.
Cat Mt.1,955s **(ft?)
Raven Hill 1,925, ****, +oks, DS, B + PV, X Very Hard Mt. to climb. Lots of high rock faces. Hard to get around private land. It's the most prominent peak in the immediate area and you can't miss it once you get off exit 31. For its elevation it is an impressive looking mountain. It has a 1277' foot ascent so it is very steep and it is lined with huge 400 foot cliffs. As of 2005 many of the trees on it's summit look like they are dying so the views might have improved.
Peaked Mountain (Paradox Lake) 1,880s **, One, DS, B + T, PG. The Fun part of this mountain is that you can rent a canoe from the campground. Trail a little steep at the end but relatively easy. There is only a small veiwing area from the summit and it looks like it is growing in. The veiws should be better when the leaves are off the trees as the guidebook suggest but who wants to cross the lake in a canoe when it is that cold.  
Potter Mt. (Pharaoh Lakes) 1,860 ***. +oks, DS, B, R Relatively straight forward bushwhack, Good view of the surrounding area
Belfry Mt 1,820 ****(ft), one, puc, T, G Short hike with great rewards. Easiest Mountain in the Adirondacks to climb.

Unnamed (Lincoln Pond) 1,686, *** +oks, DS, P, PG-13 Great view of Lincoln Pond and good views of Rocky Peak Ridge and Dix. Path mostly easy to follow, some difficult parts near the summit. It is deserted off season when the campground is closed, may be more popular when it's open. You have to search about for the views Northwest to RPR and Dix.
Makomis Mt. 1,662, **** ~180, DS, Pv, X, Great View of the Dix & Giant ranges. Unfortunately the summit area is now closed. The path is no longer is used much and due to icestorm "Blowdown" has become very difficult to follow.
