I have been up top 5 or 6 times. its all true, unmarked trail! Meanders through woods the you must walk away from lake or left facing the ledges. About 5 minutes you will see a bit of a trail going up. It's what I call a rock scramble. ok for dogs in reasonable shape. Fantastic view from 1st overlook southward. Rogers slide is truly wonderful... if you can find it. You continue along the to North. maybe 100 yards? look for any rock Cairns, they will mark where you need to go east through woods to find the slide. it's all a little grey but worth it. As for getting lost, I have come down 3 different ways but they all end up at bottom of ledge. Take a left, eventually pick up trail to campground. oh watch the pooches at the slide, no joke.

Attempted this hike this week-the entrance to the trail is inside Rogers Rock campground. You will need to pay a $3 or $10 fee to park, either way you will need to walk in the campground about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile to reach the trailhead that is actually located in back of one of the campsites (210). There is an obvious, but unmarked path that leads through a lightly forested/meadow area. You will then come to a rock wall that is virtually unmarked, there are a few ribbons or remnants of ribbons and there are several places that look like they could be the trail, but none that are clearly marked, the climb up is not awful (I am a semi experienced hiker) but it became obvious that I may not have been on the actual trail and there was no way to really tell. As I was unsure, I made the call to turn back. I checked in with the really nice park ranger and asked about the unmarked trail and was told that because the trail does not actually belong to the park, they do not/cannot mark it and he also told me that a family had been lost the weekend before and require search and rescue to locate them. So if you are unsure or have not done this hike/trail before, this may not be the hike for you.

Not really moderate. had to climb up a huge cliff. lost the trail a few times. tried to bring a dog up there but had to take him back because it was too dangerous and difficult for him. fantastic views all over.

Crazy hard for a new hiker to find the “trail” during the most steep rocky part. View was gorgeous and once you make it past that it was easier to follow!

The reviews about trail markers are accurate. This trail needs some help. However, it is not an LGLC trail system as one reviewer wrote, it is the state DEC. This is a hard hike, best done over three days to enjoy the views.

There is no marked trail to the top, though there are some orange ribbons on trees. Herd path trail is accessible from the northwest corner of Rogers Rock state campground. It is also a steep bushwack if you choose that route. Nice views from the top, about 2.4miles round trip.

Gorgeous views along the way but the final stretch of this trail (down to the point) is poorly, or not at all, marked. Very frustrating to find a trail that has had he markers removed. Glad to have finished my 12ster but would like to see the LGLC work on the markers.

Did this hike over two days. Started at Deer Loop and finished at Clay Meadow. No rattle snakes sighted. Stayed at Fifth Peak, lean too was in great condition! We did about 7 miles on the first day in about 4 hours with 40 pound packs. We did a little over 13 miles the second day over the course of about 9 hard hours. Trail is very poorly marked and the last stretch is not as flat or as quick as described here. I got my 12ster done and that was what mattered!

Great hike. First half easier than second half. Picked up by boat. A fun way to do it if you can.

beautiful views but a difficult trail at times. Mixed woods and open rock with the potential for a fantastic swim in lake george at the point of the tongue peninsula
