Cat and Thomas Mountains, Bolton Landing

4.6
#4 of 6 in Parks in Bolton Landing
Just a five-minute drive from quaint Bolton Landing, the trails to the summits of Cat and Thomas provide a rewarding introduction to hiking the Adirondack trails. All of the preserve's trails have worthwhile views of Lake George’s south and central basins and the southeastern Adirondacks.

Hunting and trapping is allowed at the preserve; appropriate state licenses are required. Hikers should be aware of hunting seasons and wear bright colors and hike in groups to minimize risk. Mountain biking is also allowed on all of the trails. Recommended biking routes would be the orange trail, the yellow trail (to intersection with red) and red trail, from its intersection with yellow to Edgecomb Pond.

The Lake George Land Conservancy maintains the trails of the Cat and Thomas Mts Preserve through DEC's Trail Cooperative Agreement program. We welcome your comments and reports of damage or trail maintenance needs. Please contact us at 518-644-9673 or stewardship@lglc.org.
