Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
Mount Marcy is the final peak stop on our proposed four-summit day, but it doesn't have to end there. We hiked the ridge from Gibbs to Marcy and then returned to our camp in the upper part of South Brush Creek. But there are several other ways these peaks can be completed and several other peaks could be included such as Cotton King, Silver and Spread Eagle. See our separate write-ups for them. As for the Gibbs to Marcy hike, the 1.5 mile traverse is no more than Class 2 with one rockier section around Pt. 13,335. Use Gibbs Peak as the "access" for Marcy in this description. For trailhead access, on the east side of the range, use either the Ducket Creek TH or the Gibson Creek TH, both of which will utilize the Rainbow Trail to reach South Brush Creek. From the west side of the range, use the Cotton Creek TH.
