Dogs are allowed to walk up to the summit via the trail. It is all rock after the stone staircase. Gorgeous views all around. Very windy, speeds up to 138mph have been clocked here. Summit weather is always different than at the bottom. Wear something warm and good shoes. Watch your footing as a fall would be bad! We had 80mi vis that day so we were lucky. Remember the air thins the higher you go, it might be a short trek to the top but conditions make it feel tough.

If you want to go to the top of a mountain for a beautiful view but don’t have the energy to climb up one, White Face is perfect for you. You can pay the toll fee to drive to the top and then take an elevator up to the beautiful view. It’s pretty windy and cold up there, so I would recommend a jacket and leave the hat in the car, unless you have something to keep it on tight. The view is amazing and you can even see Montreal on a clear day.

Great views of Lake Placid and other peaks! Fairly short walk on granite slabs, slippery in places so use the railings.

Amazing views from the top! The stairway to the top is very rocky and sometimes slippery, but definitely worth the view! Highly recommend if you are staying or visiting this area

family-friendly little scramble from the castle to the peak. Definitely worth the views!

Drive to the top and then took elevator up. Amazing views with no effort. The $25 cost to drive to the top was a little pricy.

Stunning views at the top. it's just a drive up followed by a steep climb up the steps. rails on both sides for safety. the bugs were pretty vicious.

6/3/19 not a hike at all, but it was great to drive up there after doing a couple other hikes in the area, easy drive up and down just use low gear on your way down, it's 20 bucks to get in which kinda stinks but it is what it is, but the views are crazy and the over looks are amazing!

this is not a hike!! this is a drive up the highway and then a walk up the stone steps from the parking area. offers gorgeous views at summit (of course!)
