    Ebenezer Mountain

    Driving north on Rt. 9N towards Upper Jay there is a mountain I believe to be Ebenezer Mountain. It has very many open ledges. Views from the top must be outstanding. Some searching on-line indicates it is not public land. It still begs the question, is there a herdpath up this mountain and/or do the property owners allow access? Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Joe, thanks ever so much for this. There is actually an updated map pending which I will be happy to share as soon as possible that also shows the boundary around Rattlesnake and moving over to the West to Winch Mountain (the one you posted - much appreciated - is of one of several tax parcels). The easiest thing to remember is that our line runs the height of land! Thanks all!

    I kinda feel like this thread should be closed/locked.
    Anna kindly provided more than enough details & contact info.
    No need to continue discussing her and her husband's private property.

    That's correct. The Adirondack Land Trust did a bad job of describing the parcels that they purchased, by failing to include a map in their PR. They have caused confusion with their announcement.

    The parcels that Adirondack Land trust are shown in the attachment. The parcels are 27.1-2-30.000, 26.4-2-1.000, 27.1-2-29.000, 27.3-1-35.000, 27.3-1-2.000, 27.3-1-1.000.

    Reference the Essex County Property Map for details of those parcels:

    Attached is the Essex County tax map (fine red lines are property boundaries) with USGS overlay. I have highlighted in red the summit property of Ebenezer Mountain which is owned by Wellscroft Ice House LLC. An Na Vo, I hope I got it right.

    Hi Everyone, hope the map section attached clarifies any ambiguity around the boundary line. Please note that the version I am sharing today is from before the Land Trust purchased Four Corners (the Schwalbaum property) earlier this year. I will update the map and post a better resolution copy shortly. Again, any questions please just get in touch. Note our land IS posted! Thanks so much.

    Hi Mike, no, that's wrong. Rattlesnake belongs to the late Martin Schwalbaum (the parcel that was purchased by the Land Trust as discussed here). Ebenezer is largely us (the Napiers/ Wellscroft LLC). Feel free to get in touch if you have questions.

    And if I had gotten caught, I would have paid the (probably tiny) fine, and not tied up Yellowstone NP in court for ten years...

There are a bunch of folks out there (Adirondack Explorer - you listening?) who seem to want to try to force their way into private land, when there is tons of state land available to explore. This is usually in support of a false narrative that the concept of private land is somehow "evil." Do the work; explore the state land. Believe me, there's plenty. Or pay the fines for trespassing.
    Like your dog, Phil Brown didn't "hurt anything" while he was there.

    Dear Joe, that is categorically not true, sorry. Ebenezer has two summits, the lower one being the one discussed here, and that is on our property. I will try to upload a map with boundary lines to avoid any more confusion. Please also note that the property is posted. Again, as I said in a previous post, please just email us if you have any questions - I am David's wife Anna and can be reached at volkmann@me.com. You can get in touch with him at anthonydavidnapier@gmail.com. Thanks.

    What happened with that lawsuit?
    I know they were in court a few months ago and it was being covered by AE...
    Then, they just ghosted on the story/outcome.

    The Adirondack Land Trust purchased Ebenezer Mountain earlier this year.
