After taking a few years off from the Hike-A-Thon, we’re happy to bring Peggy’s Point back into the event as a special location for dog lovers! This property is perfect for pups to play and even get into the water to cool off. Treats and activities for dogs and their owners will be available. To help ensure a happy and safe experience for all, please come prepared to keep your dog on a leash (even if it’s a long one).
Located in the heart of the Town of Hague, Peggy’s Point is a beloved park enjoyed by residents and visiting guests. With just one tenth of a mile to walk, guests can reach the lake and gaze out over the water to its eastern shore. Hike-A-Thon participants will gather here, at the sandy point, for their hoto op.
Peggy’s Point is also close to the Town of Hague’s park, which includes a bathroom/changing facility, playground, and sandy beach with swimming area (beach opens at 10 am).
About Peggy’s Point:
Peggy’s Point was formally dedicated on June 24, 2011, in honor of Margaret “Peggy” A. Darrin. A long-time supporter of LGLC and all things Lake George, Peggy donated the 1.9-acre property to LGLC in 2005 to be maintained as a park for public enjoyment. The park includes 315 feet of lake shoreline, a popular spot for anglers and anyone who wishes to sit and enjoy a peaceful moment on the point. Having previously hosted cabins, a convenience store and a gas station, the property is now a lawn for families to play and picnic together, as well as a beautiful Friendship Garden. A meandering path leads from the park gate to the Friendship Garden, a 30-foot diameter bed, consisting of perennials provided by the public in honor of or in memory of a special place, person or event. Anyone is welcome to add a plant free of charge, however we ask that some guidelines be followed to ensure the health and overall enjoyment of the garden. Guidelines and further details can be found at lglc.org.
