The 8th Annual Rangeley Trail Town Festival was another great success for the trail community and the Town of Rangeley! The A.T. Communities program is now up to over 40 towns that are assets for the A.T. and help with the Appalachian Trail! In Maine there are four A.T. communities (Monson, Millinocket, Rangeley and Kingfield).
The Rangeley Trail Town Festival was a great day of food, fun and music right on Haley Pond in downtown Rangeley. The Maine A.T. Land Trust had a table alongside our A.T. partners, the Maine Appalachian Trail Club and Appalachian Trail Conservancy. We gave out hundreds of the new Maine High Peaks Map and Guide which shows the trail section in the Rangeley vicinity, with day hikes broken out for easy access. There was also an ice cream eating contest!
