|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New York|

Ascent Trip ReportStarted at the adk loj and took the trail to Marcy dam. We crossed the creek flowing from Marcy dam via the newly made bridge about a 100 yards down stream. We then followed the trail to the phelps junction. From there it was a mile to the top. Overall the trail was not all that steep. When we reached the summit we were unsure if we were there, so we kept walking around on the trails until we were sure we were there. All in all a nice trip for my daughter and father in laws first high peak.
