Black Mountain reviews
Completed a 6.5 mile loop up to Black Mountain Summit and then back down around the Ponds areas. Steep rocky ascent close to the top of the summit and early on back down. A walking/hike stick or... more »
This mountain has a lower and upper trail. The entrance by Hulett's is about half way up. The terrain is walkable but steep. Pack plenty of water and your camera. more »
Nice hike. Too bad the fire tower is now a radio tower and the windmill noise is annoying. Nice views of Lake George. I would suggest Shelving Rock which also has great views of Lake George without the windmill noise.
I went to a nearby summer camp and we hiked it at 3am to see the sun rise and was the most gorgeous siene I have seen! So worth it :)
