The trail itself is well marked and maintained. The view is beautiful at the top of Lake George. However the road and area around the beginning of the trail are not very welcoming. There are many trailheads close together. The parking is very limited for the amount of cars in the area using the trails and it is not well marked where parking is allowed. The town where the trail is located is making a lot of money from hikers who are just trying to enjoy some time in nature.

Great short hike. Is pretty steep and you climb about 800 ft in a little less than a mile and a half. At 22 I found this fun whereas my 55 year old parents struggled a little bit. We all agreed that the view at the top made it worth it! After this hike took a quick 8 minute walk out to the falls to rinse off and enjoy the view, totally awesome day!

Note: this trail doesn't lead to the falls at all we had to leave the parking lot and head further and took the dam access road to the falls.
