Description

The Hatchery Brook Trail is located on the outskirts of Rangeley village and features 50 acres of forested land and a 1/2 mile of frontage on Rangeley Lake.  A network of shoreline and forested wetlands provide critical wildlife habitat.  A series of bog walkways provide low-impact travel across the wetlands and minimizes impact to sensitive plants and soils.  The dock installed in 2009 and three picnic sites on Russel Cove provide water access for boaters while affording views of Town Park.
