My husband and myself took the trail up the mountain for a little exercise. They have a shuttle to the top and back ,that passed us on our way up the mountain..It was worth the trip to look at the beautiful view. We took the shuttle down the mountain.

Great mountain with great views. It is easy enough for a novice hiker in the summer. It is also drivable for those that just want the view. Great for packing a picnic lunch (dont forget to take All your garbage with you).

Crossing the Northway on the bridge is surreal. Walking... More

Good spot to hike or drive to for a nice view of Lake George. There is a parking lot close to the top, allowing one to hike up the rest of the way.

Prospect Mountain was an amazing place to go. There were many stops on the way to the top, that blew me away. The view on the top was stunning. There was a beautiful lake, The Vermont mountain far away. The mountains and trees gave such a spectacular vibe. This is such an amazing place to visit with friends and family.... More

For those who can't hike to a mtn summit, take the drive to the parking area. Then free bus ride to summit. Find the old railroad station, view the high peaks. Great in the fall
