Camp on the shore of Lake George on this overnighter, then climb over three mountains on a ledgy ridge with many grand views of the lake, unusual ?ora, and the chance to spot a rare Adirondack rattlesnake. The Tongue Mountain Range in the Lake George Wild Forest is literally a long tongue of land that juts into Lake George from its western shore, creating a fjord called Northwest Bay. There are five distinct peaks along the high ridge of the range—Brown Mountain, Five-Mile Mountain, Fifth Peak, French Point Mountain, and First Peak, from north to south—and several hiking options. Many people opt for the short hike to Deer Leap (3.4 miles round- trip), a rock cliff that drops to the lake at the northernmost end of the range.
