    Hiked it after a couple of days of pretty solid rain, so the trail was a creek from Marcy Dam all the way to the top summit blocks. I get the impression this is pretty normal. Unfortunately we didn't have the best views that day. I'm told there are better, prettier hikes in the area, but this is the iconic one so we chose to do it anyway.
