John brooks to Mt Marcy

Hello everyone, I am planning a trip along the John Brooks trail to the top of Mt Marcy. I was wondering how many miles or how long it would take to get from the garden trailhead to the Bushnell falls Lean-to I want to find a decently placed site to make this an overnight trip. Any information would be appreciated.

I don't have my trail maps or books at hand, but if memory serves, it's maybe 1.5 miles or so beyond JBL, so about 5 miles or so from the Garden. Not a lot of elevation gain, so depending on your pace, how much you're carrying, etc., I would say 2.5 - 3 hours, or so. BTW, you don't have to carry a lot of water. There is a pump at JBL with potable water, and obviously lots in Johns Brook, as long as you have means of purification.

I suggest you pic up the Nat Geo map of the high peaks.
