Summit Mt. Marcy & Algonquin Peak - Labor Day Weekend Hiking & Camping Expedition

Summit Mount Marcy & Algonquin Peak 
Trekking the Adirondack High Peaks

Intermediate to Advanced Hiking & Camping Expedition
Friday, September 4 to Monday, September 7 - 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.


Algonquin Peak - 5,115 feet (1,559 m) - is in the MacIntyre Range, is the second highest mountain in New York, and one of the 46 Adirondack High Peaks in Adirondack Park. Its name comes from its reputedly being on the Algonquin side of a nearby informal boundary between the Algonquin and their Iroquois neighbors.

Algonquin is shorter than Mount Marcy; however, it is steeper; requiring almost as much vertical ascent in a considerably shorter distance.
The mountain's summit is an alpine zone above tree line, and views of the surrounding high peaks are available in all directions.
