Great day to be out on the trail! Only needed Hillsounds, a couple of inches of snow on ice. By the time I made my decent, a couple of groups had broken the glaze off the trail making it easier to make time! Started just after 8am and was off the trail by 3:00pm

Don't usually do reviews but I thought a trail condition report would be helpful: On 1/16/20, there was about 5 inches of fresh snow on the trail between Bump's Pond and Erebus (Official Summit) that was readily handled with microspikes. Most of the streams running on the trail were sufficiently frozen over (though not all). There was no mud.

A great morning on the mountain. Some slushy ice in the beginning turned to ice and snow the rest of the way up. Micro spike heaven.

There is no parking or trailhead - just look for the hikers road sign and pull over as far as you can off the toad. Great single track.

This was a cool hike. There is a gradual elevation from Adirondack Loj to the split to Mt Marcy trail and the lake (barely anything). There are many places to stop and camp, as well as use “toilets”,after the dam, but fires are not permitted. I also think you need to register at the Loj. Once you start up to Avalanche Lake, you start to gain elevation. Pretty steep in some spots, not very many switchbacks. You will need your snow shoes at this time of year (you need to take snow shoes regardless, but if the snow is deep enough and you aren’t wearing them, you will get a scolding from a ranger, or even a fine). When you get to the lake, you can choose to walk out into the lake. I heard it was a great point of view. We just opted to sit on the edge and eat lunch. We did the up an back route, which by the time you get back to Marcy Dam, you wish the hike was over, but you still have another 2 miles until you get back to the parking lot. Give yourself plenty of time during the winter months so you don’t find yourself out in the dark. It took a group of 4, with two people above 60 years old, 7.5 hours (four up, 30 mins for lunch, 3 back, with stops to layer-down and bathroom breaks). We also had great weather (35 degrees F, no precipitation and no wind!). All in all, I agree with the moderate rating. I put that you need a fee, because there is a fee to park at the Loj ($12 per car per day). You can rent equipment here as well.

Very tough 8.75 hour day. Snowshoes most of the way up, but crampons coming down the trails of Tabletop and Phelps with all the frozen streams. Back to snowshoes for the main trail.

Our group hiked up big slide via the brothers last weekend. There are great views along the ridge and at the top. We used snowshoes the whole time but saw others with only micro spikes. Based on a few tricky/icy parts on the way up we opted to take the alternate way down from the junction via johns brook trail (we did not do Yard and the bigger loop as there is a lot of blowdown). JBL added 3 more kms but it was a very nice gradual easy trail down through the forest. This was our first winter 4k! Definitely would recommend.

This trail was truly an adventure Right from the start you get started on an incline. the hike to the first brothers was beautiful, and not too many difficult spots. The rest of the hike to the second brothers was downhill then a steady incline up. Hiking along the ridge was an incredible experience. The scramble up big slide was challenging. Fun using the ladder. Views we're incredible and breath taking at the top. Micro spikes are a must, many icy spots. Butt Slide as you ascent from the peak you won't regret it!!! Amazing hike!!!

Nice hike. Did the loop counter clockwise. Saw a few peaks I’d hiked in the fall from the Curtis-Ormsbee trail (Friday, Balsam Cap, Lone, Rocky and Table from that view point). Needed microspikes. Snowshoes not really needed but in the winter that can change quickly.

Amazing views

cold sunny day, hike took about 4 hours wore micro spikes to help with slipping. we followed a slightly pack trail. No wind today which made the temperature seem warmer. we used this app to follow where we were on the trail. this made it easier changing for one trail to another. ( All trails app) Beautiful hike limited view through the trees, less if the trees had their leaves.

Breakneck ridge in the winter was a very different experience compared to my usual fall hike. Trail was empty but it was below 0c. You have to be careful due to lots of ice but otherwise it was a lot of fun.

Amazing sunrise hike! Highly recommend! We did the full loop and the north side of the mountain is very rocky and currently very icy.
