Photos of High Peaks Wilderness Camping Trails

Hiked this trail on Oct 12, 2019; tons of foot traffic along the way since we chose peak foliage season. The way up started out super easy and got a bit trickier beyond Marcy Dam. The last 30-45 minutes becomes almost entirely large flat rock to walk along at an incline. The way down was brutal on the knees and ankles, don’t forget once you get up you’ve got to get back down ;) We arrived around 7:45 and had to park about a mile up the road because of so many people there. We actually started hiking at 8:00, reached the summit at 12:30, spent an hour at the top, began descent at 1:30 and finished at the base at 5:45.
