Getting There

RLHT purchased this 280-acre property in 2001. It consists primarily of forested land interspersed with rolling fields and meadows. Evidence of its agricultural history can be found in the form of stone walls, wire fencing and crumbling livestock watering wells. With over a 1/2 mile of frontage on Rangeley Lake, the property provides diverse habitat for song birds, wading birds, amphibians, beaver, bear, deer and moose. In late summer, the fields produce wildflowers and berries enjoyed by hikers and other wildlife.

Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust 52 Carry Road, Oquossoc ME 04964 (207) 864-7311 www.rlht.org

There is a beaver dam in Smith Cove that floods the low-lying trail during high water. Be prepared with waterproof footwear and bring a camera for pictures of wildlife.

From Rangeley, take Rt 4 north 5 miles from town, take left on Bonney Point Road, and travel approximately 3/4 mile. The parking lot is on the left.

This trail is very narrow, windy, and muddy. Not the most streamlined walk, but the views at the lake are very lovely.

We went clockwise on the loop trail. The first half was very ugly with much deadfall. The spot at the lake was lovely and very peaceful. We were unable to find the loop trail to the left of the spur. It seemed rather poorly marked or your redline map was inaccurate.

Great hike for the family! Brought our 8 month old via a pack and our 4 year old who is starting to walk on her own for hiking this year. Took the side path to the lake, nice little spot! Some trees down in the loop and a few very muddy spots but overall not too technical for little feet, well marked and great exercise! We will be back again.

This trail was easy and well marked but no view, alot of roots and blown down trees. Not a trail I would recommend.

HikingBlowdown

Loop was well marked, though lots of blowdown - had to physically pick up my dog to get her over multiple large downed trees across the trail. The trail off the loop to the water was inaccessible - totally blocked by blowdown. Still, the loop was a nice short, relatively flat walk (30 minutes at a medium pace). Nice woodsy setting, not too buggy even during black fly season.

nice trail, took my 8 and 4 year old, who did fine. some bugs, but to be expected this time of year. moose tracks everywhere, but no sightings. lovely stop at the water to skip some rocks.

Nicely marked trail through pretty woods with a pleasant end at Smith Cove. Very straightforward and pleasant hike. Not difficult at all.

Excellent trail for all ages! The forest really varies as you complete the loop and it leads you to a beautiful view of Rangeley Lake. There is a picnic table at the lake to sit and rest and enjoy the view!
