Our group from the Catskills hiked all the way around the base of Mount Marcy in the rain, before tackling the summit in good weather. I was sure homesick as an 11-year-old on my first journey away from home and family. The lakes were eerily quiet (from acid rain). Good view from the top.

This hike (7.5 miles, 3000 feet in under 4 hours) convinced me that I could climb all 46 Adirondack High Peaks. After reaching Marcy, I climbed nearby Skylight, and Gray.

My first time and a lovely day. I have been there now several times and it is always a pleasure. Though my favorite trip was one Feb. day- a group of us came over from Grey.

Nasty weather. Previous night temperature hung around 32 degrees. Precipitation varied from one minute to the next - snow to rain to mist to ice to slush to just not pleasant. Went for the summit on the morning of the 23rd. Weather was moving in, temperatures were dropping like a rock. Reached the summit before noon. It was so windy, the wind would blow my leg around so much I couldnt place my crampons where I wanted to! Great trip, unfortunately no views.

Absolutely gorgeous day - Sunny, light winds, 35-40. Started off in dark at 5:45, reached summit at 11:00 with a few stops. First to reach summit that day, passed about 20 people on the way down.

Hiked from Marcy Dam via the Van Hoevenburg Trail over the summit to Panther Gorge. Spent the night at Panther Gorge and then climbed out near Little Marcy. Fun trip.

After a long and grueling 9 mile hike to the summit, it was well worth the effort. It was a very windy and chilly day on the mountain. Awesome view!!!

Hiked this more then once, but I always seemed to have great views. The winter climb was the best. I have done it mostly from Grey, over the land bridge.

first peak on a Marcy-Haystack-Basin-saddleback day. The last two were unintentional because we had missed the trail back to the loj area and had long since run out of water. I was 17, on a week-long trip to the adirondacks with my SCT crew and completely green. This trip started the whole peak-bagging nonsense.

Great hike up, bummer view - it was completely overcast and I couldn't see more than 50 ft out.

Bill JirousekRoute Climbed: Van Hoevenberg Trail from ADK Loj Date Climbed: August 13, 2003  Sucess!

Stayed at the Loj with the wife and we did a day trip up Marcy. The trail was mostly a horrendous quagmire until we reached the treeline due to rain in the days leading up to our climb. Quite a few snakes slithering across the trail. Nice weather for the climb though - sunny with great visibility. Spent some time at Indian Falls on the way up. Always nice to dip feet/head in the water on hot days. Fended off attacking ocelots around 4000 feet. Kidding. There were quite a few people on the summit; the weather was clear and views were great. (Great cell phone reception up there, by the way.) The way down felt long due to the ever-present mudpits. A great hike though, and we got back in time for dinner. My fifth time up.



Next time I am definitely doing Skylight and/or Haystack while I'm up there.



Staying at the Loj was very nice (great food) but I prefer tents at Marcy Dam or further out.

16 miles round trip to the summit and back, and it was shrouded in clouds when I got there. It cleared up a little bit, but it was still and enjoyable hike. The hike up took 3:18, the hike down 3:20 because it was very rocky and wet on the trail, and I had pictures to take on the way down as the sky cleared up. This was my 26th State High Point!

Snow on summit in June... nice feeling. This is a long hike and consumes the day.

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful day to hike. Surprisingly enough, no black flies, which made it all the more pleasant. At the top my cousin, my brother, and I had a great lunch, great views, and a great discussion on the best ways to stop the proliferation of zebra mussels in our lakes.



As my old buddy Number 9 says, "there's nothing like a day in the 'dacks to recharge the old batteries."
