Oh the Adirondacks, how I love thee!
Saturday my friend Brendan and I drove up to the High Peaks area to do some hiking with Christine and her friends. She’s in the middle of hiking all 46 high peaks and wanted to hike Table Top Mountain. We met her up there at the Adirondack Loj where the trail began. Finding the Loj was pretty easy, there are three huge parking lots for hikers, and a camp shop for buying supplies and renting bear canisters. There are also bathrooms and showers!
Off we went for our little jaunt in the woods.
Table Top is one of the unmarked trails, but the first 3 or so miles are on a marked trail, eventually the marked trail goes off in one direction and then the unmarked, to Table Top, goes another. After hiking up a narrow, wet, rocky trail we found the summit, which was small and wooded.
My least favorite part is going back down. We had the option of doing Phelps on the way back, but it would have added another two miles and Brendan and I were feeling beat. Next time.
