Cat and Thomas Mountain Hike

Date and Time

05/06/2018 9:00 AM EDT

Details

Let's enjoy a 7-mile loop hike over Cat and Thomas mountains near Lake George. I last did this hike many years ago, when it was still owned by the Lake George Conservancy and the trail was still pretty raw. Since then, the state has acquired it for the Forest Preserve. A very enjoyable loop hike begins from a trailhead near the I-87 Northway and leads over both mountains, which feature fine views of southern Lake George.
