I guess I thought this was more of a hiking trail. Instead, it is a nicely paved walkway that goes partly around the lake. Some sections, looking out at the mountains or walking past the boats, are quite scenic. Others not so much. That said, it is a nice respite form the charm and cheese of Canaada Street (the main...

My husband and I had the greatest time. We found Prospect Mountain which we didn't even know existed and we have been to Lake George many times. By the way, we always stay at the Super 8/Downtown Lake George. They have really good prices and the staff are awesome. I highly recommend them. Now about Prospect Mountain. It is right... More

It starts behind the courthouse (Red brick building with clock tower) in the Village and goes all the way down to Million Dollar Beach. Very nice walk or ride on a skateboard or long board, especially at night. Lots of... More

We walked this every day of our vacation. Great views with plenty of places to stop and sit. If you go early in the morning, you practically have the trail to yourself.

There is not a "trail head," just park and either start way down by the beach, or by the restaurants. Most is sidewalk, so you can use canes, strollers, and bring your dog. Nice view of the Lake.

This trail has vistas that will take your breath away. It's challenging in spots but worth the effort.
