I did this loop from the ADK Loj up marcy then over to Skylight and Gray and down the Lake Arnold Trail. It was an amazing trip on an absolutely gorgeous day! The temps hit around 90 but the summit of Marcy was still cold and windy. My favorite part was the short section between Skylight and Marcy, super cool to defend that side! The trails to Skylight and Gray, and the Lake Arnold trail were all very wet, of course I got the full experience on the notorious floating logs! This trip was unsupported, I carried all my own food, water and filter, extra clothes, etc. and stopped to filter water at Lake Tear of the Clouds.
