Following the shore of Lake George, the trail system around Shelving Rock Falls was once carriage roads and therefore makes for some of the easiest hiking in the Adirondacks. Though the trails are easy, they are beautiful and provide an excellent variety of scenery and history. You can explore the trails and destinations in a variety of ways, so consider the system of trails more of a destination than simply a hike. Timber rattlesnakes are known to occupy the shores of Lake George, so be cautious when stepping over logs. Highlights of this trail include a spectacular waterfall, lakeside hiking, and old foundations.
