Finger Lakes Land Trust Looking to Buy 205 Acres Along South End of Skaneateles Lake
The Finger Lakes Land Trust is looking to purchase 205 acres near the south end of Skaneateles Lake to create hiking trails.

The Finger Lakes Land Trust has entered into an agreement with property owners Bill and Leonard Burns, the land is located along Route 41 in the Town of Spafford.
 
According to Land Trust Director Andy Zepp, the parcel is a critical piece in the trusts’ goal to create a public trail near the lake. The property features woodlands, small meadows and agricultural areas that provide views of the lake.
 
The majority of the land is located on the west side of Route 41 near a scenic overlook. About five acres on the east side of the road will be part of a 4,000 foot-long corridor that will connect the property to the Ripley Hill Nature Preserve, a 130-acre preserve owned by the Central New York Land Trust.
 
The land trust plans to demolish an abandoned house on the property, and build a 12-car parking lot.
 
The town board must review and approve the plan; the board will hold a public hearing on the project which is subject to an environmental review.
