Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a moderate hiking trail on the eastern side of Lake George, about 15 miles from Lake George. The beginning portion of this hike can be difficult. There are a lot of rocks to scramble over in this section. After returning back to the parking lot, continue along the road to find the trailhead for the Shelving Rock Summit. Overall, it is a very gentle climb to the top. Make sure that you continue further from the summit to see the gorgeous lake view. An even better view awaits you if you go down toward the right and reach the western ledge (descend about 150' below the summit by walking about 100 yards). This is the best viewing spot. Please note that the last road access on the Hog Town Road and the Shelving Rock Road is unpaved and slightly bumpy. Depending upon the car you drive, you will need to be careful.
