Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2016


Hiked up Tabletop Mt as my last hike of the winter. Trail was icy and packed snow, temps in the 30's with blue skies. Couldn't ask for a better day! The view of Mt Marcy was spectaular and I spent about 45 minutes on the summit before heading down. The day warmed up significantly by the afternoon and on the way out, the last 2 miles from Marcy Dam to the Loj was deep, sucking mud the whole way, which made for some slow going. And my boots must've weighed about 50 lbs by the time I finished. See ya after mud season high peaks!

After a soaking wet day the day before, the summit of Table Top gave excellent, if not slightly limited views.

Climbed in wet weather and I'm pretty sure the trail is (in dry conditions) a dry riverbed. Not much for a view but I ended up linking this climb with Haystack for a pretty solid day.

I greatly enjoyed climbing up through the snow covered pines, hearing the brook next to me on the way up.

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2013


Summited Tabletop Mountain 4427' around 12:30AM during a 15 mile night hike from the overflow parking at Adk Loj at South Meadow Ln. We intended to spend our Saturday relaxing at Marcy Dam, our campsite, but after eating our freeze-dried dinner we changed our mind. A weather window opened up and we left Marcy Dam, torches on, at 7:30PM. Followed the Van Hovenberg trail to the Tabletop junction, trekking through a lot of mud, and made it to the summit around 12:30AM. The summit is extremely uneventful so we left soon after we arrived. The descent was long and muddy; very difficult on the knees. We made it back to Marcy Dam, striked our camp, and made it back to S. Meadow Lane by 2:30AM.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 1976


I remember this well! A fellow Boy Scout had to take a dump at the top, and did not lower his pants properly. We ended-up burying his pants near the top of the mountain and he borrowed an extra pair from me! He probably still has mental issues with that embarassing day! (Check my vintage "Dear Grace" letter in the Pictures section)

a fine summit with good views and an easy hike up.. I thought Phelps was more difficult to be honest.. Beautiful ADK evening though.

Made this side trip on the way back down the van hoevenberg from Marcy. Wet and muddy, but easy enough. Weather was beautiful and I spent some time at the summit even though there wasn't much of a view.

Nice little day trip. Pretty easy peak. The trail is pretty well worn, and was nice and muddy. But beyond that, no complaints. A good peak for beginners.

The trail was dry and easy to follow. On the way up, the view of Colden was from an angle I had not seen before. It looks very pointy & steep. After you pass the treed-over summit, there is another viewpoint. Haystack looks very cool, can't wait to climb it, although I am thinking about saving it for my final 46er.
