Pilot-Knob is located on the eastern shore of scenic Lake George in the Adirondack Region of the state. This is a popular hiking area, where a moderate 6.6 hiking trails leads up Buck Mountain to a summit at the 2,000-foot level that offers gorgeous views of the lake and beyond. This is a wide, well-traveled path that crosses several easily passable streams and becomes more rocky and steep near the peak. The hiking trail is also "dog friendly." Other activities at Pilot Knob include swimming, boating, white water rafting, and parasailing, kayaking, fishing and biking. Million Dollar Beach is a popular beach area on Lake George for swimming and features a bathhouse, lifeguards, picnic areas and volleyball courts. In the wintertime, Lake George offers ice fishing, ice skating, cross-country skiing and downhill skiing at nearby Gore Mountain. Unique activities include hot air balloon rides over the Lake George and narrated sightseeing cruises on board a steamboat. Several factory outlet centers are located along the "Million-Dollar-Half-A-Mile" and restaurants and lodging are abundant in the area. Other nearby attractions include the Fort William Henry Museum, the Lake George Battlefield Park and the Lake George Opera Festival in nearby Saratoga Springs. A wild west ranch and western town is also located at Lake George, and is described as "an 1800s ranch experience," with horseback riding, wagon and pony rides, a petting zoo, shops, saloon and a Wild West Show.

Pilot Knob Weather & Climate

The weather in the Adirondacks can be variable, but historically the area has not been subjected to the devastation of hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes that plague other parts of the country. There are four distinct seasons with winters marked by consistent snowfall and cold, crisp days. Summers are warm and pleasant, with temperatures rarely climbing above 90 degrees, and evenings with low humidity. In fact, in some areas of higher elevation, summer evenings can be downright cool. Generally, there is no rainy season in the Adirondacks, but rather there are both wet and dry spells in every season. Rain in the mountains has uneven patterns. It can be raining in one spot and ten miles away it will be dry as a bone. The western Adirondacks can experience lake effect snowstorms as early as October, from Watertown to Old Forge and areas south.
