Owner description: A 2,030-foot mountain in Lake George that offers trips to the summit in "viewmobile" vans for awesome views.

Definitely not to be missed if you're in the Lake George area. Entrance to the drive is right at the south end of Lake George Village. Drive to near the top with photo op parking along the way. There are a few waterfalls, likely weather dependent and wild flowers everywhere. Walk the remaining way to the peak or take a shuttle bus. Walk is not too difficult with pretty views and watery rock ledges along the way. The peak provides 360 degrees of panoramic views. Their is a sign at the entrance rating the "visibility". We got great photos with a "fair" rating. A true bargain, $10 per car, for any activity...but the photos and memories of the views-WOW!

Benn going to Lake George for Americade for years and never went up Prospect Mountain Highway. What a mistake...The view is AMAZING. Can see the entire area from the peak. Best part is only motorcycles or hikers are allowed at the top.. No car allowed. If you are in a car you have to park about 500 feet below and walk to the peak. There is pleanty of picnic tables up there. Also there are three seperate viewing areas on the way dow, or up if you so choose. Cost was $5 for a motorcycle and $10 per carload... Definitely worth the money.

They do not accept New York State Empire Passport. You have to pay their charge. Apparently they are a separate park from New York State Parks.

Having been on it on occasions of group admission what you get is great views from several vantage heights. But that's about it.

Great views, dont miss this adventure, spend an hour or half the day. You an picnic at the top. Something everyone can do.
The only obstacle is getting on the van to ride to the top. Ask for a ride on the wheelchair lift, much easier to get up and in and out agai .

great view, great history and well worth the trip up. Many sites to look at and each has a history board to tell you about the site.
