It was a slow climb all the way to Gray, with plenty of mud and wet rocks, but the trail to Skylight and Marcy did not disappoint! There were a few icy patches left from some cold weather earlier in the week, but the temperatures were surprisingly warm today. The peaks were very windy, but nothing worse than during my weekday runs by Lake Ontario. I carried all my food and water but there are plenty of water sources along the way. This would be a great summer route to do on a dry summer day, traveling light with a filter.
