“Great Trail for a Moderate Difficulty Hike< Amazing View”

Reviewed June 22, 2012

The trail is perfect for those who can handle a moderate difficulty hike. It is not good for young children or hikers who can not navigate steep inclines and declines independently. The views of Lake George are amazing from the summit and the hike is a great workout. Plan on about 4 hours of hiking.

Great views of Lake George from the summit, fun windy trail, nice loop to a pond for swimming and shelters. Bring some hot dogs and smore fixings for a barbecue.

The best part of getting to the top is the scenery. The cabins that were on the trail were really neat for the kids.

Hike in from the Fort Ticonderoga side trail head then down to Lake George access and back again. Nice views along the way.

My husband and I did this trail with other family members who are experienced hikers. They rated this as a "moderate in difficulty" trail. It is not for small children or older adults afraid of turning an ankle. It is a beautiful hike throuh the forests of Black Mountain and rewards hikers with an amazing view of Lake George and surrounding peaks of nearby mountains, making it well worth the trek. There are a lot of steep, rocky paths the last 3rd of the trek up the mountain. It is an excellent workout and a hike you need to expend moderate effort in at, but in a very satisfying way. Gi\ve yourself 3-4 hours for this hike.
