Hiking in the Lake George Region


  • Prospect Mountain
    Distance - 4 miles roundtrip
    1650 foot vertical rise
    Hiking Time - 3 1/2 hours
    An easy and convenient trail.  See the remains of what was once the world's largest cable railroad.  Splendid panoramic views.  Stop at three seperate overlooks - The Narrows, Lake George and The Eagle's Eye.

  • Buck Mountain
    Distance - 6.6 miles roundtrip
    2000 foot vertical rise
    Hiking Time - 5 hours
    Buck Mountain lies on the southeast shore of Lake George, and is a perfect introduction to the Adirondacks.  The views from the summit encompass thousands of square miles of the Adirondacks to the north and west, parts of Vermont's Green Mountains to the east, and Lake George and Lake Champlain.

  • Rogers Rock
    Distance - 2 1/2 miles roundtrip
    Elevation 500 feet
    Hiking Time - 2 hours
    At the outset, the hike is mostly uphill and northerly, and then continues along a seemingly unused path up to a ledge until an open expanse of scenery appears to the west.


  • Sleeping Beauty, Bumps Pond, and Bumps Pond Overlook
    Distance - 4.5 mile loop
    1038 Foot vertical rise
    The overlook atop the cliffs offers a wide vista.  The mountains of Vermont rise beyond the outline of the Champlain Valley to the east.
