Bonney Point was purchased by the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust in 2001. Although the 280-acre property is primarily forested, evidence of its agricultural history can be seen in its meadows, old stone walls, wire fencing, and livestock watering wells. With over a half-mile of frontage on Rangeley Lake, the property hosts diverse habitats for song birds, wading birds, amphibians, beaver, bear, deer and more. In late summer, the fields produce an abundance of wildflowers and berries enjoyed by hikers and many types of wildlife.
As with all Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust properties, there is a carry-in, carry-out policy. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pet. Be sure to bring your field guides! Additional information and a map of the property may be found on RLHT's website.
