MOUNTAINVILLE – The Orange County Land Trust’s efforts to purchase over 300 acres of land on Sugar Loaf Mountain are underway, having signed an option agreement to by the land from the owners in June of this year.

The land trust is currently finishing the risk assessment phase of the due diligence period and securing sources of financing.

To help raise awareness and build community support for the project, the land trust has placed “Save the Mountain” yard signs in the area.
