Did half this loop on the way down from the Sleeping Beauty summit. Pretty nice trail, a little muddy in spots but nothing too bad, but it was super buggy today. I don't think I got bit, but they were just swarming if you stopped walking for even a second.

Took this trail down today from the summit of Sleeping Beauty Mountain. There is a beautiful waterfall visible a bit behind you, and a few vistas of the lake and mountains below (behind a bit of foliage) as you descend from this trail. Bumps Pond itself is serene, and I enjoyed the wildlife and diversity of forest terrain, especially closer to the summit of SB - I heard a few woodpeckers and saw a snake. Trail is well-marked with blue blazes and is the quieter of the trails in this part of Lake George. I had to take two starts off because of the loose-ish rocks that cover most of the trail. It is also quite muddy and dominated by streams, which is understandable at this time of year. However, the rocks make traversing streams and mud much harder and less enjoyable. I combined this with the Sleeping Beauty trail and made it my own loop (about 4 miles not counting the walk in the woods road to Dacy Clearing).
