This red-marked 1-5/8 mile trail leads to summit of Prospect Mountain. To reach the trail from Lake George Village, turn west on Montcalm Street (away from lake) to Smith Street; turn south 1/2 block to trail head sign. Trail crosses 1-87 on an elevated walkway. The climb to the summit is not difficult. One part of the trail follows the road bed of an old funicular railway that served a once-thriving summer hotel on the mountain. Remains of both the mountain and the railroad still exist.  Prospect is also home to the Veteran’s Memorial Highway ($10/car, 10AM – 6PM, last ticket 6PM must leave by 6:45).  Map and trail guide for Prospect Mt.
