SCENIC CHAIR RIDE & HIKING

 

 

LET NATURE’S BEAUTY SURROUND YOU |CLOSED FOR 2020 SEASON

Take a scenic chair ride to the top and enjoy stunning views of the Adirondack and Vermont Mountains, and the Hudson River Valley region. A scenic lift ride is the perfect way to get a birds-eye view of the surrounding area. Relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of Mother Nature as you gracefully soar to the peak of West Mountain. Once you arrive at the top, try hiking on the mixed-use cross-country trails including the “Crow’s Nest” trail that will take you to West Mountain’s Beautiful Scenic Hudson River Valley Overlook. We also suggest stopping for a picnic at one of our many picnic locations (Picnic packages available for purchase here). Hikers can then take the chairlift back down to the base area or follow the “Slideshow” trail down the mountain to the Base Lodge. Hikers are welcome to hike on the regular ski trails with their access band. Fun and fitness for the whole family, a group of friends, or romantic outing!

2020 Rates: $10 (12yrs and under), $15 (13yrs +)
