If you heading to see shelving rock falls, be sure to do this quick hike to catch some summit views of lake George too. Very easy hike for any age or active level.

Pending where you park, we parked lot #3, you back track along the road a bit and it takes maybe 20 minutes to get to the falls. If you go past the falls trail markings are okay and you make your way along the lake. Wish it was a bit more of an exciting hike to get to the falls. Never did make it to the peak of Shelving rock which was lot #4, maybe next time!

Nice connecting trail from Buck to Sleeping Beauty.

Began at the Hogtown parking lot and did the trail to the summit, then the pond and back. We take our time so it took all morning. First time that we had done a mountain summit and it was incredible! Plan on going again in the fall as the view must be wonderful then.

Loved it and can’t wait to go back

Did the trail yesterday. It is not marked but is pretty easy to follow. You do need to have decent skills to climb some of the spots because there are narrow spots. Views are great!

Fun hike, a bit rocky at times, great view at the top. Would definitely hike again!

Excellent views and a super easy hike.

Hiked up for sunrise, still an amazing hike which reward u with a fantastic view. Continue the hike to Erebus, which is kind of muddy and lack of view

Absolutely stunning views!

We really enjoyed this hike. It reminds us of The Pinnacle in comparison. Once you reach the top you’ll see the lake but the views are restricted. Definitely follow the small paths down...it will lead you to an open area with views. The views are amazing!!

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
