5 miles total round trip. Lots of shade for sunny, hot days. A couple brook crossings; great for your dog to grab a drink or cool off with a swim. Beautiful summit with great views.

Loved this trail! On the way back down if you take the left to Bumps pond you get a nice view of the water and then continue to make a full circle back down to Dacy’s landing. A bit rocky, but we made the entire hike that was about 6 miles or so!

Hiked on 5/11/18 and trail is awesome. Road is open now and you can drive all the way back to Dacy Clearing which makes this hike so much shorter, 1.8 miles one way to be exact. Muddy in some spots but overall a great hike.

Nice trail some scrambling at the top. Still a good bit of ice and snow near the top. As another reviewer wrote, several stream crossings. A good bit of mud too. Views from the peak were stunning. Tongue, Gore and whiteface were visible.

Very easy hike. Crosses several streams so make sure you have waterproof boots. Great view of Lake George, the Tongue Range, and the Highpeaks. Small taste of what the Adirondaks have to offer!

dog and i hiked this with a friend and it was very beautiful and nice and short. very icy! made a mistake in not wearing spikes but We survived. falls were beautiful

I've done Sleeping Beauty multiple times but never in the winter. Went this weekend (2/18) and it was great. Snow on the trail was packed down enough to navigate, definitely needed microspikes and I was also glad I had my poles with me as well.

First hike by myself- screwed up and somehow went to fishbrook Pond- was amazing!!! Will definitely do this again. Hopefully be able to see all the ponds- this area has quite a bit to do as far as trails, hiked views, camping, etc. pretty sweet

great for hiking with a dog

I thought this trail was absolutely perfect for a beginner like me whose never been hiking before. The weather also cooperated the entire day for mid-October.

Finally was able to complete this hike ! 2 weeks ago the sleet and rain took us out!

The last .8 was pretty icy but didn’t need spikes although we had them just in case !

Not a bigger hike


Plenty of things to see

The drive down to pick up the trail wasn’t packed

The wind was really heavy at the top , cover your face !

Warm clothes is a must ! It was 33 out and the top was around 25!

Over all great hike and would do it again !

Lovely walk with great views at the summit.

My dog Jake and I did a very quick hike up and down because we started out late. Trail is getting icy towards the top. As always the views are beautiful. I hike this once or twice a year.

Beautiful view at the top and some on the way up. No problem getting to the Dacy parking lot. The trail is icing up now which has made some of the trail tricky. Much of the trail is rocky but definitely manageable. The view is amazing and bumps pond beautiful.

Very easy trail with a nice waterfall and a view of Lake George.

Beautiful view, very easy for a moderate trail, family friendly. We drove in and parked at the 2 nd lot, we were done early enough to do bucks mountain the same day, now that’s a moderate trail

This was beautiful! Make sure to check out the Chimney by Bumps Pond, it was really neat!

Definitely hard with a small child in a carrier. Rough terrain. Amazing hike

Great beginner’s hike! We went with a 2 and 3 year old who did pretty well but we would probably leave them home next time.

Good hike! Not too difficult and amazing views at the summit. I would do this again.

Absolute favorite place to hike in the Adirondacks!! So beautiful and peaceful!!!!

Misleading as it is only .4 to the falls. We walked it then hiked Buck Mountain in the same area. Very beautiful.

My dog loved it! There were many options for different trail lengths and the view was beautiful!

Did this as a sunset hike, breathtaking

Nice and easy trail with a great summit! A few steep switchbacks and plenty of wet/muddy spots. Incredible views set back from Lake George.

Great hike with an amazing view.

It was breathtaking at the top. Went in late spring and am heading back tomorrow !!

Love this hike. On a clear day the summit has some beautiful views.
