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 and both reward hikers with wonderful views. This 1,909-acre parcel is now part of the Adirondack Forest Preserve.
 

The orange trail to Thomas Mountain follows a logging road as it winds up the mountain through varying forest types for approximately 1.5 miles (3 miles round-trip). The trail ends at a charming and furnished cabin where hikers may rest and take in the region's scenic beauty with 180-degree views of Lake George. The cabin is available on a first come, first served basis. Please allow for 2 hours round trip.
 

The yellow trail to Cat Mountain also follows a dirt road most of the way. From where the orange trail turns to ascend Thomas Mountain, the yellow trail continues straight for 1.25 miles to the intersection with the ridge trail. The summit here offers a stunning 270-degree view of Lake George and the Adirondacks.
 

While camping is permitted up to three nights, you must be at least 150 feet from a road, trail, spring, stream or pond. Larger groups or more nights require a permit. Motorized vehicles are prohibited. Also, hunting is allowed on Cat and Thomas Mountains, so if you are hiking during hunting season, please wear bright colors.
