We went up the five mile mountain trail and the Lake George view were excellent. However TAKE THE WARNINGS OF RATTLESNAKES SERIOUSLY! I had to convince my two sons to wear hiking boots, telling them that this area was a last refuge for the eastern rattlesnake. But little did I know how important that was! On a coolish, cloudy day my son Nate walked unaware right next to a coiled rattler catching some solar energy on a bridge. When he was 'rattled' he jumped up and seemingly teleported away, yelling rattlesnake!! My other son and I had to detour around the bridge, unwilling to confront by far the meanest, nastiest snake I had ever seen in 20 years of hiking. So have fun, but beware the 'Snakes on a plain'.
