The Tongue Mountain Range is an 11 mile stretch of land that that juts out between Northwest Bay and Lake George's main body of water. It rises over 1,00 feet above the waters below and provides ample hiking opportunities. It is also a very interesting and popular area that is notorious for supporting a rattlensake population. More on that later. There are a couple of access points for the Tongue Range along Route 9N and today's hike would be from the southern access.
