Nice self guided hike; make sure you wear sneakers! Very pretty views and little bits of history along the way. Great way to spend the afternoon (and get a workout in!). Make a day of it; take the scenic drive and head over to the...More

This was a last minute trip decision and we were glad we went. An easy 30 minute ride from the Lake George area. We really enjoyed our walk around the facility. An all-around nice place to visit. Lots of extra options besides the scenic hike....More

Beautiful views. A bit shorter than expected. Ads are misleading. No sign of guided tour . Extra $$ for rock and fossil dig. Unfriendly staff. Gave it 3 stars for the beautiful natural views. Overall, reasonably priced.

We did the self-guided, go-at-your-own-pace tour following the well-marked trails. Four adults and two teens. We all loved it. So beautiful and really took our time. We all tried the climbing wall (it's short for adults so our challenge was to move horizontally across it)...More

Response from erumsey | Reviewed this property |
My teenagers certainly did. They do love hiking and water and rocks though, so your results may vary of course.
Would this be suitable for an almost 3 year old? We are concerned about the amount and intensity of the trail. How much walking is involved all together? What is the process-do we park, walk trail to get to caves/bridge/kids activities(gem mining,Dino dig etc)/and rock shop. Then walk back trail to get to the car? Or is it in a loop? Thanks!!
