Two loops offer experienced and inexperienced hikers alike a great chance to get into the woods with the destination of a view overlooking Rangeley Lake. 
Trail Activity
Hiking Walking
2.80 miles, Network
Dirt/Forest Floor, Rock/Ledge, Grass


From the parking lot a multi-use trail offers easy hiking with a nice, flat surface with only one or two hills.

Attached to the multi use trail are two loops. The smaller lower loop uses both old logging roads and hand-cut trail, resulting in a moderatley difficult hike. The upper loop is exclusivley hand-cut trail, that also has moderatley difficult hiking. This longer loop truley immerses the hiker in the woods, nature, and wildlife that Hunter Cove Uplands provides.

Off  the upper loop and the multi-use trail is a short trail that leads to an overlook of Rangeley Lake, offering a place to eat lunch and rest while enjoying a fantastic view.

Poorly maintained. Marked trails seem to dead end. Snowmobile trail is good. Trail marked ‘lake’ well used & view of Hunter Cove is pretty.
