Show your pride as a Scout with this Mount Marcy, New York Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion, which adheres directly to your hiking stick, commemorating your bold ascent to the peak of the highest summit in the Adirondack Mountains. The perfect symbol of your grit and determination, this medallion is not only great to show off, but it will also serve as a reminder of all you can achieve when try hard and do your best.

Mount Marcy is one of the High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains. The most frequently used route up the mountain is the Van Hoevenberg Trail which climbs 7.4 miles to the summit, a lengthy roundtrip which can nevertheless be done in a day. On September 14, 1901 Theodore Roosevelt had just finished summiting Mount Marcy when he was informed that President William McKinley, who had survived an assassin’s bullet just a week earlier, had taken a turn for the worse. Roosevelt then hiked ten miles to the nearest town, where he hired a stage coach to take him to North Creek, New York. The road from North Creek to Mount Marcy is now designated the Roosevelt-Marcy Trail.

Minted with an antique bronze finish, and imbued with brown enamel, this medallion depicts an artist’s rendering of Mount Marcy, along with its elevation of 5344 feet. This Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion is a durable and unique reminder of this momentous achievement on your Scouting® journey.
