Rangeley River Trail, Rangeley


  • Preserve Size: 150 acres
  • Trail Mileage: one-way ~1 mile
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: river, old rail bed

This trail at this 150-acre Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust preserve seems a little unloved (or it did in the summer of 2017), even while it appears to have great promise. The best place to pick up the trail is behind the Oquossoc Grocery Store. Then you follow a snowmobile path for about about half a mile before it splits. If you take the left snowmobile path, you’ll come to some wetlands that border the lake, if you go right, you’ll come to a pretty river and bridge.

But there is no discernible trail out to Indian Rock. Or, if there was, it’s grown over. I tried very hard to find it, following some pink tags about half way down the spit of land before I gave up (and the tags disappeared).

Directions: Drive down Hatchery Road, behind Oquossoc Grocery, and you’ll see a pull off on your left.



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