Description

This trails system winds through 100 acres of forested land on a beautiful 1/2 mile section of Hunter Cove on Rangeley Lake. The property provides habitat for a host of song birds, wading birds, amphibians, and features a critical deer wintering area. The property was originally donated to the Maine Audubon Society in 1974 as a sanctuary for wildlife. In 2004 Audubon donated the property to RLHT to ensure its sustainable stewardship.
