Tabletop is a broad three-humped peak located roughly between Marcy and Phelps. As you might guess from the name, the summit of Tabletop is not an exciting narrow point. Additionally, Tabletop's summit is fully treed. In the summer, do not expect much in the way of extensive views, although there are some views. In the winter, a thick layer of snow can raise you up enough to sample the superb scenery that surrounds Tabletop. This is not a 'trailled' peak, but a well-defined and semi-maintained herdpath does now lead up Tabletop. The herd-path leaves the Phelps trail not far below Indian Falls.

A key note to follow is while hiking on the Phelps Blue Trail #61, when the trai intersects with the Ski / Snowshoe trail, and the Marcy arrow sign you are at the trail head for Tabeltop. Just walk straight and you'll see the sign (photos are in our gallery so you can see). If you continue you'll pass Indian Falls and you've gone too far.
