Mt. Marcy

Mount Marcy is the highest point in New York State, with an elevation of 5,343 feet. It is located in the Town of Keene in Essex County. The mountain is in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks Region of the High Peaks Wilderness Area. Its summit can be seen from most of the other high peaks making the view from it’s bald summit one of the most impressive and expansive of the Adirondack Park.

Lake Tear of the Clouds, at the col between Mt. Marcy and Mt. Skylight, is often cited as the highest source of the Hudson River, via Feldspar Brook and the Opalescent River, even though the main stem of the Opalescent River has as its source a higher point two miles north of Lake of the Clouds, and that stem is a mile longer than Feldspar Brook.

I climbed Mt. Marcy on a warm summer day, with clear views from the summit. We chose to climb over Marcy to include Gray Peak and Mt. Skylight in the hike – and then back over Marcy en route back to the Adirondack Loj parking lot. This made for a longer hike, but although Mt Skylight was my 46th high peak, we wanted to end our “46er” quest on Mt. Marcy…
