You must have winter hiking experience in the high peaks in order to join this hike. This is a very strenuous, fast-paced hike and is not meant for beginners. Mount Skylight has arguably one of the most amazing views in the Adirondacks but especially during the winter. On this hike we will Summit 2 Adirondack high peaks and visit Lake Tear of the Clouds, which is the start of the Hudson River. We will start hiking at 7:00am sharp. Please arrive early and get ready so that we can start moving on time. Total Mileage: about 18.5 miles

Total Elevation Gain: about 4,000

Route: Lake Arnold Trail to Feldspar Brook, and back out the way we came. From the Loj, we will take the trail 2 miles to Marcy Dam. From there we will follow the yellow trail 0.8 miles to Avalanche Lean to. Taking a left on blue, we will go 1.5 miles to Lake Arnold. After another 1.7 miles on the blue, we turn left onto a yellow trail to climb alongside feldspar brook for 1.5 miles. I plan to do Gray Peak first, then Skylight. We will return the way we came. Depending on conditions, we can consider going back over Marcy. ADK Loj:[masked], [masked] Skylight has more stunning views of the surrounding peaks - on a clear day you can see no fewer than 30 high peaks! The Hudson River starts at Lake Tear of the Clouds. The river's journey is 315 miles long and ends in New York City! Very bad weather will cancel. I get to decide what bad weather is. Items to bring:
