There's a reroute on the VanHoevenberg trail just before Marcy dam - it's muddy and rooty, generallly messy. Conditions muddy muddy from the Table Top cutoff to the summit. Bootsucking pits just below the top, but otherwise a well established wet trail.

No special equipment needed.

Very few people on the trail when I started (especially for a Saturday). Followed signs to Marcy and Indian Falls until I saw the Table Top sign, jumped on the path and up I went. At first the trail looks like its sketchy, might be hard to follow (IMO) but as you ascend its easy to distinguish and no problem continuing on it right back to the sign when I was done. Not a bad hike overall, nothing really steep. Quiet woods. http://summithikinginnewengland.blog...-new-york.html
