Mt. Marcy - Weekend Hiking & Camping Expedition

Summit Mount Marcy
Trekking the Adirondack Mountain Range, Update 
New York
Intermediate to Advanced Hiking & Camping Expedition
Friday, September 19 to Sunday, September 21 - Limited Capacity

Mount Marcy, at 5,344 ft (1,629 m), is the highest mountain in the Adirondack Mountain Range and the highest point in New York State. It is a popular destination for hikers due to its stature and great views. The mountain is located in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks Region in the High Peaks Wilderness Area.

The first recorded ascent of Mount Marcy was in 1837 by a large party led by Ebenezer Emmons. Today the ascent is easier due to existing trails that require no technical skills, allowing ascent and descent to be made in a day. The majority of the mountain is forested, although the final few hundred feet is above tree line.



Spend up to 2 full days of intermediate to advanced hiking on several Adirondack Peaks.
