Maine Forestry Museum Trails, Rangeley


  • Preserve Size: 72 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~1.6 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Haley Pond, woods, Gull Pond Stream, museum

I was told that volunteers who support the museum — which honors the logging industry in Maine — built these pretty trails behind the museum. They wind through a forest and by a sparkling stream (in the sunlight, that is, when the sun is out), and include a picnic area/overlook onto Haley Pond. A couple trails connect to a snowmobile trail (Depot Street), and one goes to a lean-to used by people canoeing the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. You can pick up a map to the trails inside the museum.

Directions: The museum is at 221 Stratton Road. To get there, turn off Route 4 onto Route 16, and go 1,100 feet where the road takes a right. Go about a mile and the museum is on the right.


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