One of the most spectacular views in the Adirondacks!
Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway will be open from Saturday, May 26th through Sunday, November 11th.
The spectacular 100-mile view from the 2,030' summit of Prospect Mountain can be achieved by a ten minute, 5.5 mile winding drive.
A beautiful 2-lane highway leads to parking lot at the summit. En route are three overlooks, offering picturesque views of The Narrows, Lake George and The Eagle's Eye.
There are beautiful views of Vermont's Green Mountains, New Hampshire's White Mountains, New York's Adirondack High Peaks and on a very clear day, the Laurentian Mountains of Canada can be seen.
From the parking lot, take the continuously running viewmobile to the summit for more spectacular views. View the remains of the worlds largest cable railroad and bring a picnic to enjoy on the peak.
Instead of driving, opt for the 3.2-mile round trip hike, accessible from Smith Street in Lake George Village.
Please Note: For late afternoon visitors please allow enough time for your visit at the lookouts and on the summit as the gate will close at 6pm through September 6th; September 7th through November 11th the gate will close at 5pm.*
