North Creek, NY
Beautiful Gore! For those not into hiking, this wonderful mountain about a half hour off Exit 23 of I87 in NY offers a cheater’s view to the top: NY’s only gondola ride! Drive past Lake George, through beautiful Warrensburgh, and follow the signs to Rt. 28 into North Creek. A wee-bit up, you’ll see the left turn for Gore, and you’re almost there! Open Summers for mountain biking and gondola rides.
Can also, of course, hike up, down, or both.
The views are SPECTACULAR! For about $13 bucks (kids under 6 are free), you’ll be treated to a 20 minute ride up.
When you’re in the area: DO turn into North Creek. You will find the North Creek Train Depot which has great train rides, a Polar Express ride, Leaf-peeping rides, and did I mention the awesome toy store with all kinds of Thomas (there is a related article).
