Mount Marshall is the 25th highest mountain in New York State, with an elevation of 4,360 feet.
The hike up Mount Marshall is about 14 miles round-trip from the Upper Works parking lot. The trail is fairly rugged, including a lush journey along the side of Herbert Brook. The complete hike will easily take several hours, making it a full, but rewarding day.
Verplanck Colvin first named this peak in honor of Governer DeWitt Clinton. The name was changed in 1939 in honor of Robert Marshall. He was an American Forester, writer, wilderness activist and one of the first Adirondack forty-sixers. After his death in 1939, the Adirondack forty-sixers petitioned the New York State Board of Geographic Names to officially change the name of this peak to Mount Marshall.
We first hiked this peak on a warm summer day, choosing the route from the old Iron Works parking lot trail head, eventually leading up the Herbert Brook trail. The clear skies and low humidity of the day provided a fantastic view of the southern end of the Adirondack High Peaks region.
