From Upper Works Road, follow the trail as it winds its way next to Calamity Brook for 1.4 miles until you get to a T-intersection. Going straight will take you over a saddle to Indian Pass Trail
. Head right, over the bridge, and start a steady incline along the brook. About 1 mile in, you'll come to a crossing that you can either rock hop across or head up to the left and around the trail to a nice bridge. About a half mile after that there is a monument off to the left.
Continue up until you get to Flowed Lands. Here, you can either head right or take a short detour to view the lake straight ahead. You'll pass the trail to Mount Marshall on your left and eventually come to a T-intersection that will take you to either Mt. Marcy or Avalanche Pass.
Turn right and take the trail following the brook 1.8 miles to the intersection to Mt. Redfield, then 0.5 miles to another intersection that will take you to Lake Arnold straight ahead or right to Lake Tear of the Clouds in 1.5 miles. This is the Four Corners.
Take a right to head up Mt. Skylight. Take a left to go up Mt. Marcy. Or, continue straight for Panther Gorge.
