Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust

We conserve and steward the natural and historical resources of the Rangeley Lakes Region for the benefit of the community and future generations.

We've conserved 14,000 acres with 35 miles of recreational trails for you to explore. Open from dawn to dusk, our conservation areas are free for exploration, hiking, photography, birding, family outings, inspiration, and adventure!

Explore our trails on Maine Trail Finder or check off a series of places on our heritage trails: The Artist Trail, for Plein air artists and photographers, and The Rangeley Lakes Birding Trail; a blitz of habitats that are established birding sites. Both heritage trails are suited for all ages and all skills!

The Kennebago Headwaters Project

Conserving a river system begins with taking special care of the headwaters, those places where water gathers and descends the landmass on its course to the ocean. We all live downstream of those places, after all, and cannot undo the work of gravity to reverse erosion, sedimentation, and other adverse impacts once unleashed from upstream sources. Pristine headwater areas are increasingly rare, but Maine is fortunate to have a few with meandering, connected stream networks, unaltered water flow, and intact forested riparian areas. One of them is the watershed of Kennebago Lake and the upper Kennebago River (the “Kennebago Headwaters”).
