This a nice walk through the park to the Million Dollar Beach. It is not a ''trail'' but a paved walkway. It is a nice shady area with just the slightest incline. I stayed at the Super 8 on 9 and walked across the street to the "trail" every morning right down to the lake. There are several historical markers... More

We enjoyed the views of the lake and surrounding mountains along the lakeside. Not too far from the beach and the village this flat trail is a good option for those who do not want to trek uphill or want a little shade.

NOT a "trail". A pathway by the lake that leads from the Million Dollar Beach to almost the Boardwalk Restaurant. Nice relaxing walk on a "sidewalk".

The Lakeside Trail is more of a paved walkway then a trail. It goes part of the way around Lake George and is very scenic in certain parts. It passes the stores and goes to Million Dollar Beach. A nice walk!

Note: this is NOT a hiking trail. Anyone expecting that would be disappointed. However, as we were not expecting to hike, we thoroughly enjoyed our long walk. The Lakeside Trail is a paved path that runs along Lake George. It's most popular section starts near Shepherd Park and runs to Million Dollar Beach. Our dog loves to swim and is... More

I guess I thought this was more of a hiking trail. Instead, it is a nicely paved walkway that goes partly around the lake. Some sections, looking out at the mountains or walking past the boats, are quite scenic. Others not so much. That said, it is a nice respite form the charm and cheese of Canaada Street (the main...

Beautifully paved trail with plenty of room to stop, sit, picnic or grab a quick ice cream cone or snack. It starts behind the courthouse (Red brick building with clock tower) in the Village and goes all the way down to Million Dollar Beach. Very nice walk or ride on a skateboard or long board, especially at night. Lots of... More

We walked this every day of our vacation. Great views with plenty of places to stop and sit. If you go early in the morning, you practically have the trail to yourself.

There is not a "trail head," just park and either start way down by the beach, or by the restaurants. Most is sidewalk, so you can use canes, strollers, and bring your dog. Nice view of the Lake.
