Celebrate Winter!

How do you celebrate winter on Pinnacle lands? It’s January, and at last we’ve got snow. So we’d like to know what you do and where you go to enjoy it.

Send us a high-quality winter picture of your favorite Pinnacle place or people enjoying our trails. We’d like to inspire others to get outside on Pinnacle’s remarkable 20-mile trail system and make the most of this invigorating season. Include a caption with a picture you’d like the Pinnacle Association to use on its website or in a newsletter and send to Lillian Willis at lbwillisct@comcast.net.

Welcome to the Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association!

The Pinnacle is the highest and most scenic peak (+/-1683 feet) in Westminster, Vermont. It is located on the Windmill Ridge, straddling the Brookline/Westminster line. The view from the Pinnacle overlooks Hedgehog Gulf in Brookline and westward to Mount Snow and Stratton Mountain, over 20 miles away.

The dream of conserving the Pinnacle developed as a use of the Jamie Latham Memorial Fund, established in November 1991 to honor a young man who had loved this beautiful spot. From this beginning, the Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association was formed. It is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation that has expanded its land-conservation efforts, linked and extended trail systems, inspired dedicated volunteers, and fostered effective partnerships.

Pinnacle lands — with the inclusion of additions in the Bald Hill and Athens Dome areas — now consist of 1,808 +/- acres in Rockingham, Athens, Grafton, Brookline, and Westminster. These publicly-accessible lands include a 20-mile hiking trail system and wildlife sanctuary.

We invite you to experience these beautiful places, help us protect these special habitats, and introduce these lands to others through our recreational and educational programs. As you investigate our website and learn more, we hope you will become an ardent supporter of the Pinnacle Association and our important conservation work.
