This incredible loop hike takes you up three high peaks in one day, including Mount Marcy, the highest peak in New York. This is completely doable as a day hike, however, there are plenty of lean-to’s and campsites along the way should you want to make this an overnight trip.
On a crisp and clear fall day, Evan and I got an early start out of the St. Hubert’s parking lot. Our destinations for the day: Nippletop and Dial. We decided to do the loop counter-clockwise, ascending through Elk Pass to summit Nippletop first, followed by a gradual descent down to Dial.
