I absolutely love walking the battlefield. A great place to connect with nature and history while pushing a stroller.

Nice and easy walk around the lake.

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!

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

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".

quick and ez

Nice short hike that give you views of some of the 3500’. There was an undercast that was happening that was pretty nice to look at.

Did it a couple weeks ago as part of the fire tower challenge. It was my first hike after vacation so it was a great way to ease back into exercising, but very quick hike.

Nice walk around the lake. Enjoyed the mountain markers on the sidewalk that dot the sidewalk

Did this one in the snow so the walk down was a lot but the view was very pretty.

Hiked a big loop around the lake (without seeing the lake very much). Snow was pretty deep. Mostly woodsy hike.

It’s a nice and easy hike around the lake. But the best way to see the lake is to paddle board, or kayak. Great views of lake placid!

It was a beautiful day on this historic trail. It was so warm that I actually got sunburned.

walked this one mid winter with my grandpa and collected shells. beautiful blue ocean water.

great for hiking with a dog

Stumbled upon mountain lion tracks by one of the landmarks on the drive through trail..
beautiful place.

Awesome park with a lot of history. Have done trail running and hiking here. Brought my dad here the third time I came and we caught a volunteer historian giving a guided tour to a boy scout troop. Highly recommend catching a tour if you can.

You can’t hike around the lake :(

beautiful walk, run, or even drive around mirror lake . start the trail right in downtown lake placid. a beautiful walk, run or drive in any season. perfect for photo taking .

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.

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

Great for the kids. Saw lots of cool plants and bugs. Very nice trail.

beautiful fall day for a,nice walk around the battlefield!

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

Quick hike. Tower is closed for the season. I had no views since there were a lot of low clouds. Trail is well marked and will be back.
