Fifth Peak Lean-to Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Hike through a white pine plantation and a stand of old-growth pines, past cascading brooks to a peak with a lean-to overlooking Lake George."

"The Tongue Mountain Range, which juts several miles into Lake George and divides its Northwest Bay from the main lake, is one of my favorite places to explore. Summer hikers enjoy a rugged trail that traverses the length of the range, but in winter that trail would be very difficult on snowshoes. However, the winding trail to the lean-to on the summit of Fifth Peak from Northwest Bay Brook is snowshoe-friendly, although the snow itself is not likely to be as deep as other mountain ranges in the Adirondack Park (because of the relatively low elevation of the area and the range’s southern orientation, the snowshoe season arrives later and ends earlier)."
