Owner description: A 2,030-foot mountain in Lake George that offers trips to the summit in "viewmobile" vans for awesome views.
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We drove to the top as far as we could go, Then we walked a trail to the very top. You can also take a free shuttle bus to the top if you choose to. The view of Lake George from the top was awesome. If you go to Lake George you have to go to the top of prospect mountain.

You can hike or drive up. The hike isn't too rigorous. The drive includes some nice pull offs with views of Lake George.

This is a must-do in Lake George! We found out about it from a passenger on the steamboat and decided to try it one afternoon on a whim. Didn't expect the $10 fee and almost turned around, but I'm so glad we did it. The views were breathtaking - it's a photographer's dream! Even my young son was so happy we did it - there were all sorts of rocks for him to climb at the top! Best $ spent in Lake George by far! My only regret is not packing a picnic lunch!

We drove up on a hot day. It's worth the $10 if you are looking for some beautiful views and great photo opportunities. The shuttle bus is slow but it was a welcome surprise since it is air conditioned as well as comfortable.

The views were spectacular. The option to take the walking trail back to the parking lot was convenient and pleasant. $10 admission seemed a little expensive.
