This is a great hike over a small mountain range called the Tongue Mountain Range on Lake George, NY. This hike will take you over Brown Mountain which has a lean-to and up to the top of Five Mile Mountain. You'll also be rewarded with a great dip in Lake George at Deer Leap if you have the energy to run downhill to the lake and back. From the intersection you will then follow the trail out to the Southern Clay Meadows parking lot.

Nice view of Lake George from Brown. May be less visual when the foliage is in full bloom. The best view from Five Mile Mountain required a bushwhack from the main trail. Great trail system.

This was a quick out and back hike of the 3 northern peaks of the Range. We were able to locate the summit marker for Five Mile Mountain.

This entire region should not be overlooked. Amazing views of vistas from the tops.
