Good weather, don’t take your beater sedan if you’d like to go all the way to the Darcy Clearing lot. Also keep an eye out for rattlesnakes at the lookout and at high elevations.

Easy hike up to rewarding views! I went with my 9 year old, she had zero problems with this. Park at Dacys - pull into Hogtown Parking Lot, if the gate is open head straight down the rock driveway for a good 2.5 miles and park at Dacys lot. We were there at 8:30am on a Saturday - lot still had several spots but it filled up real quick. By the time we ended our hike (around 11am or so) the lot was completely full. Worth the trip!

I would recommend this trail to anyone looking for a solid hike with one of the best views of the lake. We did it on a weekday and it there were a few other small groups, but it wasn’t packed like some other hikes in the area. Take your time and enjoy this hike! So pretty.

Such a perfect trail. Good challenge worth the rocks. Trail is clearly marked for sleeping beauty vs the pond. Recommend following the arrows- makes the hard part happen first. Pond was amazing. Summit was stunning. We picked a really good hike in this one!

Really great hike! Initially we were trying to do the Bumps Pond Loop, and then saw the path for Sleeping Beauty after we saw the pond. At the fork after the parking lot we took a left and got to see the pond on the way up. It’s a pretty rocky incline, but the view at the top is stunning. We had also parked at the first parking lot rather than driving through and parking at the second. This added another 20 minutes each way walking on the road back.

We did the trail to Sleeping Beauty Summit and then went on and added the Fishbrook Pond Loop. Total was 11.0 miles. A great day overall. The view from the Summit was amazing and the pond was beautiful. Our only regret was not bringing our swimsuits!

Started at Hogtown and did both the Sleeping Beauty-Dumps pond and Erebus-Fishbrook pond loop trails. Ended up total 12.1 miles and took right around 5 hours. Road was open to Dacy Clearing and would have saved 2.5 miles and about an hour but we weren’t sure how the parking would turn out and we had just gotten the 2nd to last spot. Trail to Erebus was pretty tough. Lots of trees down and mud. A couple of spots we weren’t sure where the trail was because it was so overgrown. Fishbrook pond was the coolest spot and my wife and I decided we are definitely going back again soon. View at Sleeping Beauty is always worth the trek too and an easy in and out hike if you don’t want to do the full loop.

Once you pull into the main lot you can drive down to dacys trailhead which has another parking lot and you can start the trail from there!

super fun hike, excellent introduction to the lake George 12. difficult enough to keep it interesting, but not necessarily strenuous. the trails going to sleeping beauty were kind of busy but there weren't many people on the summit or the trail to the pond. only complaint was that it was very rocky

Nice trail. Short trail to summit is steeper and a lot more crowded. Long trail back around the pond only saw two people. Both parking lots were packed when we arrived around 1pm.

Beautiful hike. Bumps Pond is a great little payoff after a few miles and Fishbrook Pond is even more beautiful. Because I started later in the day, I encountered absolutely no other hikers after Bumps Pond. To be in total solitude while I went around Fishbrook Pond and then back to Bumps and up to the Sleeping Beauty Summit was such a pleasure. This is definitely one of the best hikes I’ve ever done. I’ll be returning to explore more of the trail system here.

This is a great trail for beginners- intermediate hikers. The entire Hog Town trailhead parking lot was full of cars but the hike up wasn’t insanely packed. The road connecting to Dacy Clearing was closed which added another half hour to our hike. The hike itself in total took about an hour and 40 minutes. A couple steep spots, a lot of slick and muddy areas, but overall a very nice and moderate hike. The Sleeping Beauty summit was beautiful and well worth the hike. This was my second time here, and I’m still not even close to exploring the entire trail system. I went to Bumps Pond on the way down and ended up catching a couple Brook Trout on a worm. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hike for anyone looking for a step above a beginner level hike.

The road leading to the trailhead is closed so it adds 3 miles to the hike. Overall, nice hike! There’s still a lot of ice and snow, but it’s quickly melting and turning very muddy! Be sure to have waterproof boots. The overlook is beautiful and worth all the mud!
