Brought my friends out to the Upper Works trail head and we decided to tackle this trek starting around 2pm.(very late) Little food and limited water, it turned out to be a great challenge. Half of the group turned back 2 miles in and the rest of us hiked ~11 miles (one way) and made it to the top by sunset(which was beautiful) My puggle Gizmo also came up with us. The night hike back down was even more fun and we didn't make it back the the cars until just about sunrise. Excellent memorable time!

80+ mph winds, and no crampons or axe, such a sad thing it is to turn around especially from so close. Still got to enjoy INCREDIBLE views though, will be back again!

Spent 4 days in adks with my son. It was a killer time. going in 2011 to do it all over. The trip up marcy was very demanding hard on the 44 year old feet but very much worth it. Ran out of water 1/2 way down. That will not happen again. So much to see loved every sec........

We took full climbing gear which made for 70+ lb. packs over the top and in to Avalanche Pass. Brought to ex-military friend and they both said the hike was tougher than advanced training. Lots of bears too!

Did not summit, we had an issue just a 1/4 mile from the top (just past where you come out of the trees). Lots of snow, and wind, but otherwise a nice day and a fun climb.

the weather was nice the whole way up, but the trail was muddy in spots (typical of the Aidirondacks). Beautiful views from the top. I'm glad I made it up early since there were throngs of people coming up when I headed down.

Hiked this one with my wife, who's a bit slow. Took us 11.5 hours to do the 15 mile Van Hoevenberg Trail, with about 7 hours of cold and rain. Still, a great day, despite no views at the top.

redmondVan Hoevenberg Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2010
Parked on South Meadow and started up around 6am. Reached the summit around 9am and spent half an hour alone up there until the summit ranger arrived. Weather was beautiful. On the way back down I made side trips up Table Top and Phelps. Amazing views from Phelps but was much too crowded for my taste. Reached my car around 3pm and headed on down to the Catskills for some hiking the next day.

Did it as part of a solo trip. Climb itself was not too bad, but given the time of year, there was steady rain and limited visibility at summit. Loved the lean to, hated having to post hole the entire trail from it.

96avs01Balmy Split Skiing  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 10, 2010

96avs01

It was a balmy -10F with 40+ mph winds at the top. The trail was a little too narrow to board down, so we descended mostly in split-ski mode. Only saw 2 skiiers on the upper trail, so had it pretty much to ourselves.
