Often referred to as the the "Ancient Adirondacks" based on their glacial history and geological formation, the mountains were shaped by a major geological event known as an "uplift". This phenomenon has unearthed previously deeply buried ancient rocks more than a billion years old, thus exposing and shaping several mountain ranges including New York State's highest peak, Mount Marcy, standing guard at over 5,344 feet above sea level.

Its pronounced vertical rock formations and signature dome crown, towering resolute, makes Mount Marcy supreme amongst stalwart peers. The mountain is the home of spring fed Lake Tear of the Clouds, the source of the Hudson River. It is also known as one of the 46 High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains. The majority of the mountain is forested, although the final few hundred yards is above tree line. Rocky outcrops, lichen, and alpine shrubs dominate the peak.
