Ascent Trip Report

Wow! What a great hike! The trail was decent, steep and blood pumping toward end, the view from the summit was incredible! Breathtaking view of lake george and surrounding mountains. Was very clear day, you could see all the neighboring mountain ranges + vt. Windmill up top was neat, breezy standing near. You cant climb the tower, but its not needed for views. A+
