Hard hike with a pack. Mostly covered woods. Very hard not to get your feet wet in Marcy swamp. Panther Gorge is the spot. You are surrounded by Marcy, Skylight, and Haystack when camping. Great water with some small mountain swimming holes. Save energy for the hike out, especially if you’ve been climbing those mountains! Saw two Moose near Panther Gorge!
