      A popular hiking and running spot, parts of the access to the Pinnacle in Lyme was conserved thanks to the generosity of two different landholders: Helen Darion and the Treadwell family. Years later, the 240 acres surrounding the already protected top of Pinnacle were conserved by Manning Rountree and Kendall Hoyt. The hilltop features an iconic abandoned chimney as well as views both across the Connecticut River into Vermont and to the Dartmouth Skiway, Smarts Mountain, and the rest of the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

      Directions: drive north on route 10 out of Lyme towards Orford, then turn right up Pinnacle Road once you have reached the end of Post Pond. After 2 miles, turn right on Highbridge Road. Continue over a bridge and up a steep hill. There will be a parking lot on your right. You can read more about the conservation project here and find a trail map here.
