Hatchery Brook Preserve, Rangeley


  • Preserve Size: 50 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.3 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: lake, picnic tables, forest wetlands, bog walkways

This Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust preserve strikes me as a place where you should do a little five- or 10-minute walk to stimulate your appetite before you settle in for a pretty picnic and a swim! There is one particularly pretty picnic table at the far corner of the preserve, with a little dock. The perimeter trail of this 50-acre preserve is one easy mile.

Directions: From town take Rt. 4 north. Take a left on Manor Road (just opposite Moose Alley). 1/4 mile on the left is the parking area for the property.



Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
