|About||This 73-acre preserve was acquired in 2015. The view from the top offers a breathtaking panorama of Lake George.|
This 73-acre parcel was acquired by the Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) and sold to the Town of Bolton in a bargain sale in 2015. The town donated a conservation easement to LGLC for further protection.
After five years of negotiations, the Pinnacle was able to be protected thanks to a partnership between LGLC, the Town of Bolton, and the FUND for Lake George, which provided major financial support for its acquisition. In addition, nearly 300 individuals, families, businesses and foundations also contributed to the project. The enormous outpouring of community support was essential to the project's success, and helped to make this a landmark achievement.
The land is contiguous to other protected lands and is a key part of a proposed Bolton Community Trail system. The Pinnacle itself is a local landmark and is highly visible from Cat Mountain and the lake. The conservation of this land also contributes towards the protection of the Finkle Brook watershed, one of the lake’s major tributaries.
In addition to monitoring the conservation easement, LGLC manages the property's recreational trails for the Town of Bolton.
