we've been to lake george dozens of times. this time we stopped at a scenic view parking area partially up the road to tthe top of Prospect Mountain. We unfolded some chairs, got ouit the wine and cheese and had THE MOST RELAXING 2 hour stay. The view was breathtaking.
Not to mention the sun and the breeze. Truly heavenly. This is a must do!!

We hiked the Mountain with our 3 teenage kids over Memorial Day weekend and loved it. The hike up is well marked but we expected it to be a little easier than it actually was. The trail was wet in many spots and very rocky, so we all managed to slip on our way up the mountain. Thinking it was a short hike we anticipated getting to the top in under an hour which was not the case at all, our kids starting to tire out about 3/4 of the way up. Once we made it to the scenic vista all was happy, and the view was really breathtaking. Total time was 2-3 hours up and down stopping several times to catch our breath. We were disappointed not to see any wildlife on our way but we did pass many people with friendly dogs making the trek and that seemed to satisfy. Bring plenty of water and bug spray, consider hiking shoes too for the wet trail.

A nice drive up Prospect Mountain overlooking Lake George. To get to the very top it is a strenuous walk. There is a shuttle that we saw but cannot comment on that. Beautiful views on a clear day.
