My wife wanted to see lake George from top of a mountain so we went, not bad only $10. Some good lookout points , whole thing takes less than 2 hours. You can walk some trials also.

This was $10 very well spent! Ride up mountain had great pull overs which each view getting better than the last. When you get to the top a bus takes you to the summit which has breathtaking views of lake George and all surrounding areas!

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
