Dix is the highest peak in the southern section of the High Peaks. Dix has a ridge-like summit that has many open ledges but is not completely bare (there is a fair bit of low scrub here and there). Dix is situated far enough away to allow for a sweeping view of the entire length of the Great Range to the north. Also of note on Dix is a prominent rock ledge just south of the summit, known as the Beckhorn. It is perhaps more interesting than the actual summit. Dix can be reached either from a trailhead on Keene Valley just south of St. Huberts, or via a trailhead at Elk Lake.
