Mt. Jefferson location map Overview
Located in the President Range, Mt. Jefferson is the third highest peak in New England at 5,712 feet in elevation. Though once surveyed for a cog railroad installation on the Ridge of Caps, the peak remains undeveloped.

Prior to the construction of Bretton Woods, Mt. Jefferson was rumored to be considered for a massive alpine ski development. Though specifics are unknown, the area could have included significant above treeline terrain, as well as a vertical drop in excess of 3,000 feet.
