Overview: 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.

Tips: Directions to Trailhead:
Follow Route 149 East towards Fort Anne from Lake George. 1.6 miles east of the intersection of Rte 149 and 9 take a left onto Buttermilk Falls Road. 3 miles down this road Buttermilk Falls becomes Sly Pond Raod and becomes unpaved. At 8.7 the name changes to Shelving Rock Road. Look for a large parking lot shortly on the right. This is the Hogtown trailhead where you will park. There is no fee to park here.
