“Challenging hike to a beautiful view of Lake George. Worth the effort.”— John Stevenson
After landing on solid ground, it is pretty much a straight up hike to the summit. The path interweaves with the old rail bed that the trail is named for. The summit has spectacular views of Lake George and the surrounding area. Read up on the history of Prospect Mountain.
