Adirondack 46 High Peaks


Phelps Mountain

Phelps Mountain 32.  Phelps Mountain
Elevation: 4161' (1268m)

Phelps is a pleasant peak that is a relatively easy climb. From Adirondak Loj it is an easy stroll to Marcy Dam, then from there it is only a couple of hours and less than 2000 feet of gain. Phelps has a treed summit but does have some excellent viewpoints on the way up, and a nice south-east facing summit ledge, with great views of Colden, Marcy and other peaks.
