We did not expect the $10 entry fee, but definitely worth it. The porta-john on the summit needed serious attention. Bring your camera and a snack and plan on staying at least a few hours to fully appreciate all that it offers.

Great views from atop the mountain, and view points along The way. Hiking areas throughout. We hiked from the upper parking lot to the top. Shuttles are available for those that don't want to, or can't hike the remainder to the top.

A must stop when visiting Lake George, New York. Quite a few of Lake George from the mountain. Breathtaking!

Take the trip to the top of the mountain. The view is about 100 miles of mountains and lakes. There are a few pull over spots for picture taking. It was worth the drive

we were there in october so I don't know about winter, it has significant grades and may be risky after the snow hits the ground and accumulates
