this is a good work out. It took me 2 hours to hike from bottom to the top. Be prepared by wearing hiking boots and bring a towel with you.

If you are in Lake George this is definitely a must! It is $10 to get in but you can spend the day and if you leave can re enter at no additional cost that same day. The views were amazing and we even learned some history at the top of the mountain.

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.

Great find. Just around the corner from the hotel and almost had it all to ourselves. On a clear day spectacular views in all directions especially along the length of Lake George.....so more than 32 miles! Lovely place

I guess $10. isn't that much for taking a road to a vista which shows you a gorgeous view of Lake George and the surrounding area... This is a peaceful activity. You can walk of take the bus. Decide when you get up there. My hubs & I drove up to the parking lot, parked, took the tram to the highest point, hung around for a while, then walked back down to the lot, and drove back to our hotel. We LIKE saying 'WOW!" anywhere on the east coast.... This side trip did it.... just an hour, maybe a little more...
