The sites were breathtaking! We paid 10 for the carload and dropped at different lookout points to take pictures. Took the shuttle up to the summit which was amazing. We decided to take the trail and walked down and glad we did.

A must do when visiting Lake George. Beautiful views and a reasonable admission price. Take an hour or so for the experience.

Navigated to the top utilizing the the Veterans Highway Memorial Avenue car route. There are three stops up the mountain and each are both breathtaking. We were able to bring our dogs though we visited towards the end of the season. Worth the $10 fee
