The visit to Prospect Mountain is an enjoyable experience for anyone, but particularly for those who can't hike miles of trails. In no more than an hour, visitors can take in wonderful vistas. The precipice also has a wonderful picnic area for those who want...More

This costs $10 first of all. You drive a few miles up the mountain and there’s a few stops you make a long the way to view scenery. In July, when we went the second stop was the best, with brush being in the way...More

It cost to get up the mountain but it's worth it. If you like to take pictures of Scenic views this is the place to go. Absolutely breathtaking views of mountains and lakes!

So we decided to take the trail from the village up to the summit. Most online comments about this trail said it was steep at times. Let me just say it is very steep the whole way up. It took us 1h30 to walk to...More

This view was very nice. Quite a few visitors when we were there. Was hoping for more stops along the way. Definitely a great cause.

It's $10 per car to go up the mountain, but the view is nice and the history is interesting. There is an optional bus at the top if you don't want to walk, but the walk is not very long, just steep.

The drive to the top I would say 5 min. Then you have to wait for the bus to take you to the very top. The buses go every 15 min or so. The drive is about 10 min as well they play a video. The rest is up to you how much... More
