The best view is from the top of the summit overseeing Lake George although there isn't much to do after you've gotten up there; apart from a picnic. Lots of bugs so bring bug spray! They're very annoying. Also good for fresh air lovers. I loved the view from the top because it allowed me to be quite contemplative about the issues in my life and the whole experience was really meditative. It's a great place to go to if you're looking for mental and emotional serenity.
