Spectacular views of Lake George and the surrounding mountains.

The trail starts on private land on North Road. You can only drive so far as a sign tells you "no parking beyond this point."

You will see a sign on the right side of the road. This is also where the Orange Disc trail begins. The trail is very easy to follow as there are many orange discs and cairns along the way. Shortly after the Ledges you will then begin to notice white blazes on the trees (as well as some cairns). You will then follow the white blazes to the summit.

The summit features some remnants of an old airway beacon.

On our return near the Ledges sign we decided to follow the yellow trail. This was very well marked and eventually led us to a junction where we decided to follow a red disc trail back to the original first junction where we then followed a trail back to the road near a cabin (old school).

The trail had plenty of ups and downs with a few steeper sections. Plenty of amazing viewpoints and if your into Geocaching there are six caches along the trail.

Please respect the Landowners as they are gracious enough to allow hikers!
