The trailheads to Hatchery Brook Preserve, Hunter Cove Wildlife Sanctuary, Hunter Cove Uplands, Bonney Point Conservation Area, and South Bog Conservation Area are to remain open throughout the winter, according to the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust.

At Hatchery Brook Preserve, volunteer trail stewards from AJs Fat Bikes will use their groomer to pack the trail and provide a consistent surface for all ages.

Other properties conserved by the trust — such as the Rangeley River Conservation Area, Kennebago 3000 Conservation Easement and Bald Mountain Conservation Area — host nearly 14 miles of snowmobile trails.

Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust has conserved 14,000 acres with 35 miles of recreational trails for all to explore. Open from dawn to dusk, the conservation areas are accessible for exploration, hiking, photography, birding, family outings, inspiration and adventure.
