A short drive from one of Maine's major urban areas, Lewiston and Auburn, Range Ponds State Park welcomes visitors who enjoy the wide sandy beach as they swim, picnic and play. Most activity centers on the waterfront which is easily accessible because of the smooth, surfaced promenade that parallels the pond for 1000 feet immediately next to the beach. Watersports are popular activities; small boats, canoes, kayaks and windsurf boards dot the horizon. A public boat launch site is located at the end of the beach and is limited to 10 horsepower motors. Leisurely walks are a must on the two-miles of easy trails comprised of old logging roads and railroad beds. A new group shelter, playground, and handicap accessible enhancements have been completed.

great hike, done many times. can get slippery if rocks are wet. But the view is worth it.

One of my favorites. Gorgeous in the fall

Short hike but fairly steep, good for taking your kids up and enjoy a nice view.

Have hiked this trail 30 times over the last 15 years. Get up early and it cool and much fewer people ( most of my hikes here have been in July or August).

That's a lot of exposure! Very steep in spots. I'm glad it was mostly dry or it seems like it could have been really dangerous.

This trail is very steep and rewards hikers with incredible views of the Oxford Hills. I would recommend trekking poles if your balance is questionable, especially on the descent.
