Spencer Pond, near Rangeley (Township D)


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: .5 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Spencer Pond

This little path’s trail head is a touch hard to find, partly because the trail sign is tucked away from the road and there is not much of a pullover for cars. Once you do find it, the trail may be a little overgrown (it was in September, 2017). After a slight uphill, at roughly .3-mile, the path comes out on a gravel road. Go right on the road here (or straight, really), and you’ll see a sign for the foot trail to your right (there is a private house beyond). In a few feet, you’ll come upon the little pond. There are no mountains to be seen here, but the pond is quiet and nice. 

Directions: From Oquossoc, follow Route 17 south for about 13 miles (about 2 miles south of Height of Land scenic overlook). The trailhead is on the left, where there is a small parking area. If you reach Beaver Pond, you’ve gone too far. Turn around and the trail head is roughly .7 miles on your right, slightly beyond a rough gravel road.


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