This is located on the East side of the lake. This is a mild, 3.4 mile hike with great views and falls! You can either boat into Log Bay and go up the trail or drive in from the east side and start from the parking area. This hike will take you down the mountain to the lake alongside beautiful waterfalls. The hike is a very easy hike down a wide unmarked dirt trail. There are multiple geocaches. Along your hike, you can discover a beaver dam and frolic in a stony pool at the base of Shelving Rock Falls. At the bottom of your hike you will reach the lake, feel free to bring your bathing suit!

The trailhead for this hike is past the Shelving Rock Falls trailhead. This is a very easy hike which is ideal for young families and large groups as you can walk five people abreast for the majority of the hike. There is some uphill involved in this hike, but the zig-zagging trail used to be an old carriage road, so it's not too steep. At a leisurely pace the hike takes about an hour to reach the summit and a half hour to descend to the parking lot. More info here: https://www.lakegeorge.com/business/shelving-rock-falls-11207/

Sleeping Beauty Mountain on the east side of Lake George is a moderate hike with a few steeper switchbacks. The length of the climb depends on the starting point and the number of added stops, and can vary between 5 and 7.5 miles, round-trip. The hike is suitable for older children who will be able to handle the rocky switchback sections, and is generally regarded as family-friendly. The two starting points are the Hog Town Trailhead and the Dacy Clearing Trailhead. The Hog Town trailhead comes first, and a 1.5 mile dirt road connects it to Dacy Clearing.
