This Estate Property is as close as you can get to what is left of our great wilderness but only 4 miles from downtown Lake Placid excitement. Bordered by state land on three sides, this is literally the last private property on the road before state land designated as Wilderness. Hike from here to the Northville-Lake Placid trail. Mountain bike to Pine Pond or head out to ski the slides on nearby Street and Nye Mountains.
