Additional "Beginner's Peaks"

The following suggested hikes are less strenuous than most of the 46 highest peaks but still offer nice vistas and are good for gaining experience mountain climbing:
Some suggested additions to the list:

7 - Owl's Head Mountain from Route 73
8 - Baxter Mountain from 9N or Beede Farm Rd
9 - Baker Mountain in Saranac Lake
10 - Saint Regis Mountain, from Keese Mills Road

All easy hikes with great views
The Adirondack Wilderness ... is a vast natural park, one immense and silent forest, curiously and beautifully broken by the gleaming waters of a myriad of lakes, between which rugged mountain ranges rise as a sea of granite billows. -- Verplanck Colvin
