Prospect Mountain

Prospect Mountain is one of Lake George Region’s iconic landmarks.

This beautiful mountain, located in the foothills of the Adirondacks, has a 2030 foot summit with magnificent panoramic views of Lake George & Adirondack Region. It is very popular among tourists, locals, and hikers because of its 100 mile view at the peak, and anyone can either hike or drive up to the top.

Drive up to the summit on the Veteran’s Memorial Highway, built and dedicated in 1969 in honor of America’s War Veterans. Along this very enjoyable 5.5 mile drive up, stop at three breathtaking scenic overlooks (1. The Narrows,
2. Lake George Panorama, 3. The Eagle’s Eye).

At the Summit, park your car & ride the Prospect Shuttle (an open air view-mobile during the summer season and an enclosed van during

Picnic facilities and restrooms are available at the summit, as well as self-guided hiking & nature trails which are well marked. Discover the historical ruins including the Bullwheel, and the Old Cable Railway.

See the remains of what was once the world’s largest cable railroad from 1895-1903. This Cable Railway brought passengers for an overnight stay at the Prospect Mountain House, a hotel once located at the summit that eventually burned down (twice).

Instead of driving up, one can hike up Prospect Mountain
for free.

Well-marked nature trails provide hikers the route to the summit. Round Trip is approximately 4 miles which will take approximately 3 hours to complete (depending on how long you take to explore the summit). Prospect Mountain is suitable for experienced and non-experience hikers. Be careful, pace yourself, bring plenty of drinking water, and take a camera for amazing photo shots.

Please Note: Hiking Prospect Mountain does not rely on vehicle entrance; therefore hiking season extends beyond May – October.
