What is a MOUNTAIN file?

A MOUNTAIN file is a game save file created by A Short Hike, a wilderness exploration game. It contains a record of a player's in-progress hike. MOUNTAIN files are named GameSaveNew.mountain and stored in the User/​AppData/​LocalLow/​adamgryu/​A Short Hike directory.

More Information

A Short Hike is a cross-platform game in which players set out on a mountainside hike and attempt to reach the mountain's summit. During their hike, players can use A Short Hike's Save & Quit option to save their in-progress game. When they do, the game creates a MOUNTAIN file, which contains a record of the user's current hike.

A Short Hike does not have multiple save slots, so it only ever creates and reads one MOUNTAIN file. If you want to start a new game of A Short Hike but do not want to overwrite your current saved game, you can rename your current GameSaveNew.mountain file to any other filename. Then, when you start your new game, A Short Hike will create a new GameSaveNew.mountain file, instead of overwriting your previous file. Then, you can resume either game by switching the MOUNTAIN files' names as needed.

NOTE: A Short Hike also sometimes creates MOUNTAIN_BACKUP files, which are backups of players' saved game.

How to open a MOUNTAIN file

MOUNTAIN files are not meant to be opened manually. To use a MOUNTAIN file to resume an in-progress A Short Hike game, place the file in the User/​AppData/​LocalLow/​adamgryu/​A Short Hike directory and make sure the file is named GameSaveNew.mountain. Then, open A Short Hike and select continue from the game's main menu.
