. . . Rangeley . . .

The ride into Rangeley is not too bad, but coming from the south (lower New England), can be a little frustrating. From the Maine Turnpike, it is necessary to take the Rt. 4 exit. Up until this point, the ride is fine. The ride up Rt. 4 is roughly two hours into Rangeley and has some hilly, windy roads.

To get around, one can use automobiles or one can use the snowmobile trails as a means of transportation. There are not really any public transportation systems, as it is a very small town.

Rangeley Lake

The mountain ranges that can be seen from the heart of Rangeley are simply breath-taking. Among the mountains, Saddleback is the most well known, and it is the mountain that people ski on. Another well-known mountain that can be seen is Sugerloaf Mountain. Rangeley Lake is a very large lake, spanning roughly ten miles long in the longest section, is a great site as well.

One of thing things that Rangeley is famous for is it’s snowmobile trails. There are hundreds of miles of available to snowmobile on, with great attractions along the way. There are many restaurants accessible right from the trails, and there are many great “picture perfect” sights along the way. In the winter, the lake freezes up and can be snowmobiled on as well.

Skiing on Saddleback Mountain
  • Saddleback Mountain Ski Resort. 
  • Rangeley Lake. In the summer Rangeley Lake is a great place to be. The lake is very large, varying in depth, but it is said to go as deep as 200-250 feet deep in some of the underwater canyons. It is fun to boat on the lake, water-ski, jet-ski, and go tubing. There are even some seaplane tours available to the public. 
  • Smalls Falls. This is a small picnic area located right on Rt. 4, a couple miles south of Rangeley. It offers restrooms, picnic tables, hiking trails, and small wading pools at the bottom of a 50+ foot waterfall. It is a beautiful attraction.
