Short forest hike with great view Lake George from gazebo at top.
Short, fairly steep hike to the gazebo. There are other (unmarked) trails further up the mountain that are fun to explore if you want more exercise. There is also a site further up the mountain where an airliner crashed in the 1960s, and you can find some remnants of the crash.
35 minute hike up to the gazebo. All uphill, sometimes pretty steep so even though it's a short hike it's a strenuous one. The hike passed gazebo to the waterfall is a longer one. I wouldn't recommend unless you think the water isn't dried up. We had rainfall the day before and still nothing.
Steep and rocky, took two lazy adults 35 minutes to climb up to the gazebo, the same to climb down. The extended trail to the waterfall is about an hour, but the water is dried up most of the year. Spectacular views from the gazebo, especially given the short hike.
Fun and quick trip, a little steep but the view is 100% worth it!
Really short hike it took and hour and a1/2 to finish. good for elderly people. really easy for a seasoned hiker.
Great trail. Very steep with lots of rocks. There were a couple spots that were not well marked, but the trail was pretty obvious. I did this with my wife and two kids (3 and 6). This was definitely a serious challenge for the kids and coming back down was pretty tough for them. That said they can't wait to go back. The trail has a nice gazebo with a view in the middle / end depending on how far you do.
Steep and short unless you go to the waterfall.
