Bonney Point Trail

The Bonney Point Trail is an easy one-mile loop; a short side trail leads to Smith Cove on Rangeley Lake. There are several picnic spots and opportunities to view wildlife and wildflowers.
Trail Activity
1.30 miles, Loop
Dirt/Forest Floor, Rock/Ledge


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.

Other Information

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.

Update: As of early Sep 2020, trail has been cleared, now is a nice easy walk with no blowdown. Thanks RLHT! Nice (small) pebble beach at the water's edge with clear, shallow water.

Loop was well marked, though lots of blowdown - had to physically pick up my dog to get her over multiple large downed trees across the trail. The trail off the loop to the water was inaccessible - totally blocked by blowdown. Still, the loop was a nice short, relatively flat walk (30 minutes at a medium pace).

Nice easy stroll in the woods. Trailhead was clearly marked and easy to find.
