Prospect Mt is always a must stop whenever visiting Lake George. Simply beautiful...the 3 stops on the ride up offer differant vantage points of the lake. The shuttle bus to the summit is currently not running which makes entry free...short hike to top.

Great views of Lake George and surroundings.

If you are staying in Lake George or traveling through, take the time to drive up Prospect Mountain. Views are lovely as we’ve enjoyed during Summer and Fall. There are stops along the way up the mountain to pull off and observe the beauty of the views and once you reach the top, views are breathtaking.

Beautiful Overlook
Sep 2021
We took the drive to Prospect Mountain on a beautiful clear day. At the time of our drive, they were not charging the $10 entrance fee. There were several places to pull off and take in the views of Lake George. At the last stop, visitors can park and take the hike to the top, but the views on the way up are spectacular, if it's not something you choose to do or can physically do.

Very challenging
Aug 2021 • Couples
Well, my wife Vikki and I Eddie 64 went up two days ago after the rain. Vikki was a runner and I was a Ironman triathlete in my 40’s. Now we basically walk minimum 7 miles every day. We did some challenging trails but we basically happy normal terrain Walkers. Maybe because was the first time on this one and we weren’t talking the best route climbing. Well, the indications was not that clear and a little to the right or left of the invisible best route, was the difference that made it even harder. Our conclusion rating of the trail is “hard to believe this is for the average Walker” it is a great trail, just be realistic with your expectations, be prepared! We had lot of fun. Met some great people like Lincoln and Beth who took the picture 🤗

Amazing views
Aug 2021 • Family
The views are great. There are several places to stop along the way to the top. There’s a place to park and a small hike up the summit. We chose to drive, but you can also hike all the way to the top right from town.

A Fun Car Ride
Aug 2021 • Couples
For $10 you drive up a well maintained road to a large parking area at the top. There are a couple of areas you can stop and take in the view on the way up. Then a short 10 minute hike to the summit is worth the effort. The summit has grills and tables. It is a shame that the road closes at 5. It can be casually done in an hour and 1/2. We arrived at 3:30 and stayed until they told us to leave. Would have stayed longer if they let us.

Beautiful views

We entered this park and drove up the mountain stopping at each of the 3 levels to get out and take in the views. Although there was quite a bit of brush we were still able to look out and see the town of Lake George and the gorgeous views from the mountian.

View nice
Jul 2021 • Couples
Nice easy view from the top of a mountain overlooking Lake George and mountains. Can drive up free after 430 pm. Cannot go all the way to top in car but a short hike and you’re there. Nice end of our day before the park closed.
