APRIL 30, 2018 (CHESTERFIELD, NY)—A property first conserved by the Open Space Institute (OSI) is now permanently in the hands of the State of New York. Featuring more than a mile of undeveloped, pristine Lake Champlain shoreline, the land is being added to the Adirondack Forest Preserve.
The “Trembleau Mountain-Lake Champlain Shoreline” property
totals 618 acres and was purchased by OSI in 2017 from the Gellert family. Just
90 minutes north of Albany, the property features more than 4,000 feet of Lake
Champlain frontage, and is the scenic backdrop to Schuyler Island, renowned by
kayakers and boaters.
Visitors to Trembleau Mountain-Lake Champlain Shoreline property will enjoy spectacular views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains to the east, and the Adirondack High Peaks to the north and west. They can also climb the property’s four rugged, recognizable peaks — Trembleau Mountain, at nearly 1,000 feet, is the tallest.
