The bigest one I hiked up was Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. Elevation: 6,288 ft. Went up it with my father when I was about 10 or 11 years old.

Mt. Washington for me as well. I was 11 or 12 in Boy Scouts. I also did Mt. Katahdin in Maine which isn't as high but seems it.
With Mt. Washington it was pretty disheartening to hike and struggle and finally reach the top, just to see little old ladies climbing out of the shuttle vans and heading for the gift shop/restaurant thingy up there.

Mount Marcy in the NY Adirondacks. 5344 feet.

I've hiked on Mount Washington as well, but I haven't gotten around to the summit yet.

I mostly just hike the Adirondack High Peaks region, with the occasional trip into Canada or New England.

Highest - well, not so high - half-dome in Yosemite. But we free climbed it on the face - so that makes up for the height. Let's see, it is 4,737 ft high. I have climed the trail about 5 or 6 times and climbed the NW face once (at 20 yrs old)

Mt. Washington is it for me - also when I was 10 years old with my Dad & brother - we did the whole Presidential Range in a 2 day trek

Have 24 of the 46 mountains over 4000' in the Adirondacks and look forward to finishing them off with my kids over the next few years

Also as a kid, I climbed Mt. Monadnock, 3165 feet. My appreciation for "mountains" has changed since I moved west, though, living in the shadows of Mt. Hood (11,237 feet) in the Portland-area and Mt. Rainier (14,410 feet) in the Seattle-area.

My mom kept referring to driving up Mt. Battie (780 feet) by Camden, ME on one of our visits back there, and I was flabbergasted that it was actually considered a "mountain". The first time she came out here was Feb. '03, and the mountain (Rainier, that is) wasn't really visible because there aren't many clear days in Seattle in February, but on her last day there it cleared up after on our way back from the beach, so I drove quite quickly to beat the sunset so she could see the mountain, and when we did finally see it, just outside Olympia, she muttered from the back seat "Holy shit!"
