“Get out and hike!”

Reviewed December 12, 2012

In this area of New York, you'll never fall short of amazing scenery, quiet trails, and trail ratings from 1 - 10. So get out and explore on foot - you won't believe what you discover.

Very nice hike. I haven't hiked a whole lot, so I don't know whats good and bad but I enjoyed this trek. With that being said I am in decent condition and can handle pretty strenuous physical activity and can say that this was a moderate hike. It got intense at times, but it all depends on the speed of your climbs. The air was cool and fresh and the scenery at the top was well worth the climb. I enjoyed it and didn't feel burnt out after it was over. I would certainly recommend, but make sure to be careful because a misstep can easily gain you a sprained ankle or worse. Lots of rocks up there.

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.
