Everyone who visits Lake George should take a day to explore this beautiful peak. Even a few hours is sufficient to check out the fabulous views . YOu can see the entire town from the top.

Beautiful views. Drive up and then you can take a shuttle or walk up to the summit. We walked and it is steep. Not for the out of shape! Nice views

Nothing finer than a day in the woods getting away from a tourist trap town to hike up the mountain to a 100-year defunct tourist trap. Not much for scenic viewing until you get to the top, but the top is really good. Two hours...More
