Not a fan. Most of this is trail is on pavement around a lake that has algae warnings. Mosquitos were terrible even with deet.

If you heading to see shelving rock falls, be sure to do this quick hike to catch some summit views of lake George too. Very easy hike for any age or active level.

Began at the Hogtown parking lot and did the trail to the summit, then the pond and back. We take our time so it took all morning. First time that we had done a mountain summit and it was incredible! Plan on going again in the fall as the view must be wonderful then.

amazing hike with serious ascents. the trail is well marked and almost entirely shaded. yes. it is rocky. sturdy shoes a must. hiking poles recommended. other hikers describe crowds. not our experience on a summer monday. we saw a few folks each way. at the top you will pop out on a park road. go left to find picnic tables, bathrooms, cold water, and a great view of lake George.

Clearly marked trail off the Warren County Bikeway approx. 1/2 mile north of Rte. 149. The start is very steep and rocky, it had rained the night before so it was also slippery. Took an hour and 15 min up and 45 min back. Overall a nice moderate hike.

Loved it and can’t wait to go back

Great views of Lake George.

Fun hike, a bit rocky at times, great view at the top. Would definitely hike again!

Did this hike as my first time taking my 9 year old daughter out by myself. She loved it and the view was great. I liked that we frequently had people passing us by since we it was just the 2 of us. People of different ages and dogs were all present.

Awesome hike

Excellent views and a super easy hike.

GF and I did this hike after a full day of basically non stop rain.The rocks were slippery so we decided to stay slightly astray from the trail as walking in the dirt was safer.Red trail is really well marked and simple to follow.Starting at the stairs we made it to the summit in 1:13 and that was with a few short stops here and there.We were fortunate enough that not many people had driven up so it was not crowded.Windy but it felt great in a humid day.Views were fantastic.I would suggest hiking shoes and we had trekking poles which helped but this is a very manageable trail.Our round trip was 3:05 but I took quite a few pictures up top.

Hiked up for sunrise, still an amazing hike which reward u with a fantastic view. Continue the hike to Erebus, which is kind of muddy and lack of view

Absolutely stunning views!

We really enjoyed this hike. It reminds us of The Pinnacle in comparison. Once you reach the top you’ll see the lake but the views are restricted. Definitely follow the small paths down...it will lead you to an open area with views. The views are amazing!!

Great hike with amazing views. Trail was a little difficult for my young kids. At the top the park rangers have a water cooler station to refill bottles.

Great hike especially the full loop to the summit and back around Bumps Pond which is less traveled. Very shady and challenging trail but not too difficult and lots of families on the trail. Great views of Lake George from the summit.

Beautiful!!

Easy trail. Kids had a great time. Doubled back to the little waterfall after summit. Worth the hike!

Amazing trek! Views are amazing!!

if you want to make this a much better hike and not pay the high price of $6 for parking right on old stage road you'll see a small parking lot that can hold around 10 car or you can parl along side the road if full. this spot will take you too 2 great overlooks. you see on the this map the dotted line call high point road. the second overlook is were hang gliders jump from. then take escarpment trail that will take you into the park and you'll be on Indian trail. this will make your hike a 100 times better.

a fun trail full of critters and a great view.

very easy. great for a hot day

Moderate is a little off. I’d say hard. The runs are straight up for the first half, over rocky terrain. The second half of the climb is steep but fun. The view at the top was well worth it! Only complaint was that it summits at an area that is basically a parking lot and picnic area. Shame on me for not reading more about this climb. I do not like to hike to something everyone else can drive to. Although we had a great time!!!

Great hike!

Beautiful view. Clearly marked, easy hike

Nice short hike. Dogs loved it!

Well-maintained trail that culminates with a beautiful view of the Lake George valley. It is NOT for the novice hiker, as you will experience significant stretches of steep terrain along the way. Bring plenty of water and prepare for a good cardiovascular workout!

Super awesome views! When you get to the first look out there is a rock face about 20 meters down to the left. a small trail takes you down. It is a must see from that spot!
