Worth the trip to the top to view the gorgeous Adirondacks. The tram to the top was helpful but we used the path to return to uor car and it was a nice little walk.

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

The front desk at the hotel recommended this. Weather wasn't great and I didn't want to go far. For 10.00 a drive up the mountain and then a shuttle too the peak. Great value and view.

After paying the $10 entrance fee, three pull-offs to take pictures of a whole new view of Lake George. Then arrive on top in the parking area which has restrooms and a picnic area. From there take either the three minute shuttle or a mini-hike...More
