Queensbury Land Conservancy would like to announce to you, our friends, supporters and volunteers, that Open Space Institute (OSI) has graciously gifted QLC with 68 acres of land on the Hudson River just to the east of Hudson Pointe and to the south of Corinth Road at the end of Division Street. This gift was made in December of 2015.
Recently Ron and Matt Ball of Matt’s Landscaping has agreed to build a parking lot and improve trails previously created by ATVs for use as hiking trails. They have generously been doing this at cost for us this winter. We are hoping to have a grand opening coming later in the spring. Please watch for it!
A bridge has been built across the Clendon Brook and a license has been granted by the City of Glens Falls so that our trails could connect to the Hudson Pointe trails. We would like to thank John Strough and Jim Underwood for building this bridge.
We have posted this property and will be contracting with the Town of Queensbury to stop ATV use of this land. The Town has enacted a law against illegal ATV use and heavy fines are in place to help deter this use. By opening the trails to the walking public, we feel this will put an end to this abuse.
Please refer to this website for updates on the future of this land as well as information on our additional hiking trails, the VanDusen Preserve located off West Mountain Road and the Clendon Brook Preserve located off Corinth Road.
