  • Treadway Mountain is a moderate climb with views of the Adirondack High Peaks and located by gorgeous Putnam Pond Campground, a popular and remote campground in Ticonderoga NY.
  • Mount Defiance, an 853 foot hill is located in “Ti,” and not only has a breathtaking view of Lake Champlain and Fort Ticonderoga, but it bears an amazing history. During the Revolutionary War, in the Battle of Ticonderoga, the British army succeeded in stationing canons on top Mount Defiance, which overlooked Fort Ticonderoga and Fort Independence, forcing the Americans to abandon the forts. The current walking road is the road British General Burgoyne’s army constructed in 1777.
  • Cook Mountain is a 200 acre-preserve providing great views of Lake George, the Champlain Valley, and Vermont’s Green Mountains. The trail is a little over a mile to the summit and is a short, steep climb. Besides hiking trails, this 200-acre conservancy has two beaver ponds, historic grave sites, and much wildlife. A moderately difficult ascent taking about 45 minutes, accessed from Baldwin Road.
  • Belfry Mountain is the easiest Fire Tower Challenge hike at just 0.3 miles.

BUCK MOUNTAIN HIKING

The bald-rock summit of Buck Mountain offers, above all, a sense of serenity and peace. The cool breeze, the endless expanse of green, and the spectacular scenery all unite to give you a unique Adirondack experience.

Buck is a moderate hike of three miles (one way), with a few challenging spots. Be sure to follow the yellow markers! Be especially careful not to take a right-hand turn early in the hike. Check out both Cat Mountain andTongue Mountain for a more challenging hike if you prefer.

GETTING THERE FROM LAKE GEORGE

Buck is also accessible by boat from Pilot knob.

PROSPECT MOUNTAIN HIKING

Prospect Mountain is one of the most popular hikes in the Lake George Region, and is a 3-mile round-trip hike

The Prospect Mountain Trail begins on Smith Street in Lake George Village. From Exit 22 of I-87, turn right onto Canada Street, then right onto Montcalm Street (across from Shepard Park).

The first four miles are rolling or flat. Miles 4-12 feature short, but steep hills along a two-lane country road on the east side of the lake.

Practical Area Information

Local Conditions

Water Safety Advice

Keeping Safe At The Lake

  • Even the best water enthusiasts can misjudge changing water conditions when boating or swimming in open water. Be prepared at all times by wearing a life jacket – you'll never know when you'll be tossed into the water.
  • Have children wear a life jacket that fits them, and watch them closely around water – they can go under water quickly and quietly
  • Everyone wears a life jacket – regardless of swimming ability, everyone MUST wear a life jacket on any boat
  • Swim in a life-guarded area, especially if you are not a strong swimmer
  • Stay sober when on or in the water. Alcohol and other drugs increase the effects of weather, temperature, and wave action
  • Never swim alone, always take a buddy
  • Learn CPR
  • No glass of any kind near the water
  • Children should be made aware of water “boundaries” in order to keep them safe. You can do this by:
    • Establishing a point in the backyard that children may not pass unless they are with an adult
    • Clearly pointing out the areas that are designated for swimming
    • Letting your children know how far into the water they may go
    • Pointing out areas where boats travel so that kids can avoid them

Ice Water Safety:

  • Always check the ice before you go out on it.  Use an ice auger, ice pick, spud bar or a cordless drill to make holes.  New, clear, bluish-black ice is stronger than ice that is white or bubble-filled.   The thickness guidelines listed below from several organizations are for new, clear ice.

  • Ice does not form uniformly.  If ice along the shore is cracked, stay off.  Lake  George has sub-surface currents that also make the thickness of the ice variable.

  • Avoid ice that is honeycombed or piled up.

  • Ice is thinner near running water.  Avoid shoreline areas near stream channels or ice eaters on docks.

  • Stay away from shoals and other underwater hazards as the ice above them is thinner.

  • Once on the ice, do not congregate in large groups, build a fire, or drive a large vehicle out on the ice.

  • When snowmobiling at night, don’t “out-drive” your headlight. Give yourself time to spot and avoid open water, pressure ridges and patches of weak ice.

  • Do not drink. Alcohol increases your chances for hypothermia, impairs your judgment and slows your reaction time.

        Trolley

        If you decide to venture down to Lake George Village please note: 

        Parking and traffic can be a nightmare; especially during the Tourist season. All parking in the village is paid parking though you may be able to find some free parking on the back roads. There is a great deal of traffic during the daytime so be prepared to stop. Driving is probably the worst way to get around the village and you’ll burn more gas in traffic then actually driving. There is an alternative!

        The Trolley

        Glens Falls, NY 12801
        (518) 792-1085
        www.agftc.org

        • Leave your parking worries behind and ride The Trolley. It’s easy, convenient and fun for all! Ride The Lake George Village Trolley as an attraction or use it for transportation. Trolley services are available to and from Glens Falls, Queensbury, Lake George, and Bolton Landing – provided by the Greater Glens Falls Transit.
        • The trolleys run daily from 8:30 AM to 11 PM from the end of June through Labor Day. There are five separate trolleys, two that go north and three that go south. They are the South RV A, South RV B, Glens Falls, North A and North B/C. Each trolley is clearly marked with a sign in the front and back windows. All trolleys originate in Lake George Village and travel down Beach rd to the steamboat docks. The base fare for all routes is $1 with children under 5 free and half price for those above the age of 60. There is a zone change fee but that only applies when traveling from a southbound trolley to the North B/C trolley or vice versa. All trolleys are easily spotted due to their bright red color but if you are unable to find one the docks are a good place to go because all routes begin there. The run times for trolleys differ per route but most run every 40 to 45 minutes.

        South RV A

        • This trolley travels down route 9 to route 149 and the Lake George RV park. This route is once an hour.

        South RV B

        Glens Falls

                Boat Launch Locations

                For guest traveling with their boats, we are providing locations to launch your boat as launching from the house is unavailable.  Please make sure your boat can fit in our boat dock before making any arrangements.

                Northern Lake George Area Boat Launches

                The following designations are used to indicate the agency that operates a particular boat launch site. Boaters should expect to pay a day use fee for launches within a DEC Campground during the camping season.

                • (D) - DEC
                • (P) - Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation
                • (C) - Canal Corporation

                  The following definitions will assist you in determining if a particular site will accommodate your boat:

                • Hard surface or concrete ramp--site affords float-off and float-on launching for most trailered boats.
                • Beach launch--no float-off or float-on trailered boat capability. Sites will accommodate the approach to the water's edge of small and light trailered boats. Boat may then be pushed on or off trailer. Usually shallow areas.
                • Hand launch--no trailer capacity. Boats must be hand carried to the water.

                  Note: Boaters and Anglers, please remember that you can help prevent the spread of unwanted aquatic plant and animal species by following these guidelines:

                • Remove all mud and aquatic plants from all gear, boats, motors and trailers before departing from your fishing location
                • Drain all water including bilges, live wells, and bait tanks before departing from your fishing location
                • Do not transport fish from one body of water to another
                • Do not release unused bait into a body of water
                • Do not dispose of fish carcasses or by-products in any body of water
