Great overall hike for some perfect views! Take this recommended Loop and you wont be disappointed. No part of this trail is too hard that a family cant do. We got to the top in 45min, & continued on to bushwack to Erebus (that takes some planning). Feel free to send me a message for best recommended route. Enjoy!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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
