Hiking in the Park
Lake George Regional Park offers hiking on the east side and west side. Please recognize some trails are located on private property and we ask for your help in respecting a “leave no trace” philosophy. The east side of the Park offers flatter wider trails good for walking. The west side offers rougher, steeper trails great for hiking.
The Park offers swimming on the east and west sides of the park. The east side is home to a large sand beach and the water gets gradually deep. Making it a great place for smaller children and families. The west side of the park offers swimming from a rocky shore and is great for a peaceful relaxing place enjoy the shade.
