Did this hike over two days. Started at Deer Loop and finished at Clay Meadow. No rattle snakes sighted. Stayed at Fifth Peak, lean too was in great condition! We did about 7 miles on the first day in about 4 hours with 40 pound packs. We did a little over 13 miles the second day over the course of about 9 hard hours. Trail is very poorly marked and the last stretch is not as flat or as quick as described here. I got my 12ster done and that was what mattered!

Great hike. First half easier than second half. Picked up by boat. A fun way to do it if you can.

beautiful views but a difficult trail at times. Mixed woods and open rock with the potential for a fantastic swim in lake george at the point of the tongue peninsula
