Sleeping Beauty Mtn Hike - Snow! April 18th!!!!

Lake George, NY area people know that a hike up to the 2200 foot summit of Sleeping Beauty Mountain on the eastern shore rewards them with a wonderful view of Lake George and its islands. On a drizzly, rainy day today I hiked up the mountain for a workout and the view. Little did I know that I would run into a snow squall about 100 feet down from the summit. It's April 18th, and SNOW! Hope it's the last I see until November.

Pilot Knob Ridge trails

Here's a pic of Lake George from the gazebo on top of Pilot Knob Ridge taken a couple of days ago. It's a 600 foot climb over .6 miles to the top, but the view is worth it.

It's Hike #12 in our Lake George hiking book. Now available at all of the regional EMS stores.

Get out and enjoy spring in the North Country!
