“Six mile scenic drive”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

State park. Hike up from village of Lake George or drive up the 6 mile toll road. Either way you are rewarded with views from the top overlooking the lake. Worth the ride or hike.

“Great View of the lake, picnic tables abound”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

We went with our car club to the top parking lot, on the route up there are lots of scenic overlooks. A shuttle is provided to take you to the very summit; you cannot drive to the very top. Several of us walked a steep, but not too bad, trail to the top. Lots of picnic table areas were seen all over. We had the pleasure of a red tail hawk that visited us and keep buzzing around, it was a great photo opportunity, all included in the 10 dollar entrance fee.

“Amazing views...must see”
Reviewed 8 October 2011

$10.00 per car gets you three stops up the mountain..all 3 are amazing views of Lake George, the Adirondaks and the green mountains of Vermont. Very glad I went up the mountain!
