7.0 miles, Half day
This is a fun seven mile loop hike that brings you over the summit of Sleeping Beauty to Bumps Pond and then back. Sleeping Beauty has wonderful views of Lake George to the west and over the small ponds and forest underneath it from a cliff band near its summit. This is a great hike for any season but in the winter make sure to stay clear of the cliff edges as it is a long drop.
