If it’s stunning Adirondack Mountain scenery you want, the Lake George area is right where you want to be. The 270-degree panorama from the top of Prospect Mountain, right outside the village of Lake George, is the best scenic view in eastern snowmobiling. With a short six-mile ride to the summit up a highway that is closed to wheeled traffic in the winter and groomed daily for snowmobilers, access to this incredible view is both quick and easy all winter long.
But that’s just the beginning of the stunning snowmobiling in the greater Lake George area. With more than 200 miles of expertly marked, mapped and maintained trails, Warren County welcomes you to wind through the woods and enjoy all that fabulous Adirondack scenery. Some trails lead to more mountain top views, and some to frozen lakes and ponds, while others provide a more intimate experience with the deep mixed-wood forest, sometimes along delightful mountain streams dotted with dancing whitewater. Keep a sharp eye out for wildlife, too. You might see deer, wild turkeys, hawks and even eagles, as well as many other bird species and smaller animals, too.
Along the way you will find many truly outstanding places to relax, dine and otherwise enjoy yourself. Restaurant fare here is definitely a cut above the normal, and many places have wine lists right on the table, too, making this the kind of place that you want to take your spouse and friends. Quality lodging choices are available throughout the area. Snowmobile services including rentals are also available, and there’s souvenir shopping to provide memories of a great vacation.
Don’t forget about the Lake George Winter Carnival either. Running every weekend in February for more than 50 years, this major happening has all kinds of events to delight everyone who loves the freezin’ season.
Access to Warren County is exceptionally easy via expressways from almost anywhere in the east, so you won’t have to fight traffic on narrow, twisting roads to get here.
