Black Mountain is the highest peak in the southeastern Adirondack–Lake George region. It lies a little farther from the bustling heart of Lake George, so hikers seeking more solitude in the eastern Adirondacks may find this an excellent choice. By summiting from the north and descending along the southern slope, you will traverse a wide variety of environs and maximize the number of panoramic views. The parking area off Pike Brook Road is sufficient for roughly a dozen cars conscientiously parked. The trailhead and trail register are on the western edge of the pulloff. Timber rattlesnakes are known to occupy the shores of Lake George, so be cautious when stepping over logs.
