Great experience! Started at the Adk Loj main parking area.The Marcy trail is beautifully maintained. Thanks to those who give so much to make it that way! We actually jogged with full survival packs! We went to Tabletop first. Great views of Marcy and some others. Trail has a lot of roots and wash ditches so slow cautious push worked best for us.On the way back hit Phelps trail.Loved it! Challenging and lots of bare rock to walk. Views are outstanding! We were impressed! We especially like the stream along the Marcy trail and the old Marcy dam area. We jogged back on the “Marcy Interstate “ as we call it now. I calculated the trip at 11.2 miles.A totally doable duo bundle for those in good physical shape. Start early to have plenty of daylight.Enjoy!
