Description

This site consists of 1000 acres of primarily forested uplands surrounding South Bog Stream.  The property includes extensive bog wetlands and also features ledge outcrops that afford expansive views of Rangeley Lake.  RLHT purchased the property in 2004 to protect its natural resource values and continue the long history of its “working forest” character that also benefits the local economy.  An interpretive trail was constructed in 2009, providing young families the opportunity to learn about the natural resources significant to the property and throughout the Rangeley Lakes region. Improvements in 2012 included the trail extension all the way to Rangeley Lake with picnic sites.
