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

A nice family afternoon in our own "backyard". My wife, who is a native, had never been. So we packed up our 4 year old son and took a short trip up to the mountain. The view is spectacular! At your feet lies Lake George Village and the southern half of the lake. Off to the east you can see the Green Mountains of Vermont, majestically rising into the air. Our son loved the open area to run and climb! And the history panels, which talked about the "hey-day" of the peak, when there was a hotel and short rail line from the village, were informative and fun to read. Overall a great afternoon trip!

The hike from atop the Mountain was a lot of fun. The kids loved it and then we went on a longer hike which became a little strenuous. We are occasional hikers and found the longer hike a little stressful

We rented scooters to get to the top of the mountain and it was amazing. Every 1000 feet there is a look out point that gives you amazing views of Lake George. The top of the summit was breath taking. Got a lot of good photos and recommend everyone to visit. It was only $5 with the scooter and $10 if you take car.

If you are visiting Lake George, don't skip making a trip up Prospect Mountain. This is an opportunity for some great pictures! On a clear day, you can see all the way to the Green Mountains in Vermont.

I recently conquered Prospect Mountain by reaching the top in about 45 minutes. The hike is challenging and scenic. Note that you need to walk across an old rusted steel overpass that crosses over interstate 87 before commencing the hike. If you afraid of heights and shaking bridges this hike isn't for you.
