We drove up Prospect Mt. in Lake George. It costs $10.00 to enter the road to the top. The money was well spent. There are 3 overlook views and a Conservation Dept. bus to the very top of the mountain. Very scenic.

Just a short drive from Lake George Village then have a panorama view of the beautiful lake. Need to pay $10 per car. Worth the drive. You can also do hiking from the village up to the mountain but you need more energy.

The first 3 viewing stops are not really anything to shout about. If you are in a hurry just go straight to the top and wait for the minibus which comes every 8 minutes and it will take you to the summit. Bring a picnic...More

we were there in october so I don't know about winter, it has significant grades and may be risky after the snow hits the ground and accumulates
