This hike was moderate - not super difficult but definitely sweat-inducing. Took about 4 hours round trip including a nice break at the summit for a picnic lunch.

My kids did the bobsled run (they thought that was just okay) and we did a horseback ride through the cross country trails there also. Would recommend both.

Take the gondola to the top of the mountain and enjoy the view of the beautiful lakes. The ride up is a bit scary, although it seemed very safe. We had 8 people in one gondola comfortably.

enjoyed the museum area looking at the antique bobsleds, and basically exploring the grounds it didn't appear that the bobsled run was operating, however we were pretty early and it seemed that is off season in lake placid area.
