“This trail that is often used to get to Mt. Marcy.”— KC93 Ci
Continue up until you get to Flowed Lands. Here, you can either head right or take a short detour to view the lake straight ahead. You'll pass the trail to Mount Marshall on your left and eventually come to a T-intersection that will take you to either Mt. Marcy or Avalanche Pass.
Turn right and take the trail following the brook 1.8 miles to the intersection to Mt. Redfield, then 0.5 miles to another intersection that will take you to Lake Arnold straight ahead or right to Lake Tear of the Clouds in 1.5 miles. This is the Four Corners.
Take a right to head up Mt. Skylight. Take a left to go up Mt. Marcy. Or, continue straight for Panther Gorge.
