Great hike especially the full loop to the summit and back around Bumps Pond which is less traveled. Very shady and challenging trail but not too difficult and lots of families on the trail. Great views of Lake George from the summit.


Fairly easy hike. Clearly marked.

Easy trail. Kids had a great time. Doubled back to the little waterfall after summit. Worth the hike!

very easy. great for a hot day

Great hike!

Beautiful view. Clearly marked, easy hike

Nice short hike. Dogs loved it!

Clearly marked and not difficult. Parking at the hogs lot made for a a good warm-up and cool-down since it's mostly flat from there to the Dacy lot.

Beautiful views from the top! Trail was very enjoyable and easy to follow.

Longer and more difficult than I expected but well worth it!

A great hike. Beautiful views rewarded us at the top. I felt comfortable taking all 5 kids ages 6-11 by myself. It was the first hike of the summer for this crew not a single complaint.

belle randonnée agréable et relaxe

Only ventured in as far as the falls but it was gorgeous. Whole family and the dog had a great outing.

Great hike, easy except for the Rocky riverbed start, remainder very easy and great views of Lake George. Definitely going back to try some of the other trails on the area

Well marked and easy hiking trail. Once you reach the summit, be sure to follow a small path to the left to a clearing overlooking Bolton and Lake George. Stunning views!

Great views, nicely paced hike. Gets a bit muddy in spots but nothing to worry about. Will take about an hour, 75 minutes-ish to get to the main viewpoint from the second car park, and don't worry about the road, just take it slow.

Did this hike last weekend, it was moderate to easy I would say. View was amazing, enough space at the top for lots of people to sit peacefully while enjoying the view.

I have been coming to Sleeping Beauty mountain and dacy clearing for over 38 years. I guess I just gave away the fact that I'm an old guy. LOL
anyway, this is a wonderful place to Camp, hunt, fish, or hike

Great Hike & Great Reward for a very short distance too! Love it!

Nice and easy hike with a spectacular view of Lake George. One of my favorites!

Awesome hike today! A little muddy!

The view was amazing! It was definitely worth the hike, it was a pretty muddy trail since it rained the night before we hiked and it was a very rocky trail. This was definitely a moderate hike for me, but thats because we parked at hogtown parking or whatever the first parking lot was, I recommend just parking at the second one. The gravel road is very narrow and people have to move out of the way for you and I’m not even quite sure what you do when another car is coming the opposite direction, but obviously it can be done because people do it I just never saw it. So definitely recommend parking at the second parking lot because it would’ve made the hike shorter and easier from the peak to the first parking lot it would be 3.3miles compared to the second one which would make it 1.8miles. The first 1.5 from the first parking lot is literally just the narrow gravel road that the cars drive on and the trail doesn’t start until after the second parking lot.

Definitely an easy hike but make sure once you get to the peak to take the narrow foot path down about 100 feet or so to get a better view of the lake.

Great area, we drove all the way out to the end of the road. From there it's a 10 minute walk down to the waters edge. beautiful area. Brings you down to the shore right by "Hen and Chickens Island".

sucker is hard on a hot day. you are stuck along the shore the whole way.

quick and ez

Beautiful hike with a great view at the end. Trail is well marked and very dog friendly (lost count after 10). Road in is a little treacherous (passing cars is tight) if you go all the way to the Dacy lot but if you feel like walking the additional just park at Hogtown.

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!
