This fairytale land is real. On the top of a fire tower, you can see the scenery of Mount Adams and the decline of the Indian Ocean vegetation. The smaller the distance you walk, the larger the field of view.
Along this road, the trail relentlessly gains a long distance of nearly 1,400 feet at 1.3 miles, which makes the long-distance passenger route only extend 100 feet in the process (which indicates that you are close to the top). Most climbs are carried out in the shadow of the young Douglas firs and the western edge, usually by wind, with no trace of water. In summer, the rocks may become very hot within a few months. Ingest a lot of fluids to protect yourself from water.
In the end, the trail reaches the bottom of the mountain. You will face the magnificent view of Mount Adams 11 miles south of its bottom. After that, it will spin back and forth as you continue to climb to the end. The surface of the rock.
To the right (to the south), it will take you to the location of the old fire truck. If you look closely, you will find that the eyelids and accessories are still visible. -The radical roof on the side was very popular at the time.
In almost every part of the road, great views or historical background can be considered. In the mountainous country, this road offers great views of the sacred mountain.

The road to Sleeping Beauty Mountain on the east side of Lake George is at the end of the Darcy Clearance Road, about 30 minutes away from Lake George Village. There is free parking at the end of the Darcy Clearance Road, but on a good day, it may It will fill up soon, so it is recommended that you book a place in advance. If there is no place, you can park at the beginning of Dacy Clearing Road. Others are free. The parking lot here only means you need to take the Dacy Clearing Road, which is about a mile and a half.
From the end of Dacy Clearing to the summit of Sleeping Beauty Mountain is approximately 2 miles one way. The hike is not very steep because there are lots of switchbacks on the trail which helped a lot, especially with two little kids. We saw tons of little kids and dogs on the trail, but also adult groups of all ages. Once you reach the Sleeping Beauty Mountain summit there are plenty of places to hang out for a while and eat a packed lunch, or even draw like our kids decided to do . The view from the summit on a clear day is one of the best views of Lake George. You can not only see Lake George, but also well into the Adirondack Mountains, and as far as some mountains in Vermont as well. We did this hike in July, and it was a nice day compared to a typical day in New York weather-wise, with low humidity, but at the summit of Sleeping Beauty Mountain, it was much cooler than the base. We were regretting not bringing an extra layer with us so we could hang around up top longer.
After spending some time taking in the views from the summit of Sleeping Beauty Mountain, you have two options for your return trip. You can take the same way back down that you came up, or you can take the “scenic route” back down which is longer but still loops you back around to where you started. We chose the scenic route because we had plenty of time and also the way up was getting busy so we were hoping for a quieter return trip. The scenic route was less steep than the way up was, and had a much different feel because we only did run into about 4 other groups hiking and they were all working their way to the summit still. Part of the trail on the scenic route down was grown over a bit, but the trail was still easy enough to follow. The other highlight of the return trip was that we got to circle around Bump’s Pond. No regrets going down the long way other than it was quite buggy and we definitely had to tap into our favorite hiking games with the kids as they were totally over h iking for the day!
This Adirondack Hike took our family about 6 hours to complete but keep in mind we were hiking with a 4 and 8-year-old who love to stop for snacks every mile or so! We would totally recommend this hike for a family who is ready to tackle their first mountain hike, and Sleeping Beauty Mountain is easily one of the best hikes in the Adirondacks for beginner hikers!
