Ascent Trip ReportOctober 8, 2011
Lil-Yeti and I joined up with Shane, Doree, Meredith, John and Mark for couple of days hiking around the Flowed Lands and Colden Lake area. Today’s goal is to climb Mt. Marshall.
We met at the very full Upper Works parking at 9 am and started down the trail at 9:20am. We were making very good time, (as a matter of fact I was thinking that with a full 40+ lbs on my back I wasn’t going to be able to keep up this pace all day) reaching the junction of the Indian trail (3.2 km) just after 10. This part of the trail is relatively flat and wide so the going was very easy. At around 3.75 Km there was gradual climbing for the next three kilometers, luckily for me the pace slowed up a bit. Lil-Yeti was doing great to keep up with the big kids. We reached the Marshall Trail Head at 12:20 and then spotted a nice place to camp at the nearby Lean-To. We spent some time looking along the trail for tent sites but because of the holiday weekend, we were unable to find a vacant spot so we decided we would claim the Lean-To for the night. It was in a beautiful spot not far from the river and had a great view of Colden off to the side.
We shed any unnecessary weight from our packs and began the climb up Mt. Marshall at 1:30 pm. In ADK terms this is an ‘official’ herd path, which means it is the way most people go, but it not necessarily a very well maintained trail. Most of the lower portion we ascended up the rock river bed and then going off into the woods where it got too tricky (or deep). Toward the top we had some very nice views of Iroquois through the trees. We reached the summit in a little less than 2 hours at 3:25. Although the peak is enclosed, we did find a few places that afford great views of Colden and Marcy, along with views back at the Flowed Lanes. We headed back down at 4:00 and arrived at the Lean-to at 5:45 pm.
