Appalachian Trail

About the AT

The Appalachian Trail brings visitors to Rangeley throughout the summer season. 

Pick up the AT near Roxbury, Height of Land, or at the Piazza Rock Trailheads. Art can be from any vantage point along the AT as it passes through the Rangeley Region.


Recreation Opportunities

Conservation Story

Established in 1937, the Appalachian National Scenic Trail is a 2,180-mile footpath. It carries hikers from Mount Katahdin in Maine to Springer Mountain in northern Georgia.
The AT is busiest on the weekends with day hikers. 

Please note this is not an RLHT property, and we have listed it here for The Artists Trail.

For information on the AT, visit the Maine Appalachian Trail Club official website. 



Being prepared means knowing where you are going before getting there. Pack a map, talk with hikers and look at trail apps. Choose equipment for comfort, weather, and safety. Plan the trip to match your time, skills, and abilities. 

We strive for one well-designed trail rather than many poorly chosen routes. Stay within the width of the trail and hike single file on durable surfaces, like rock and sand. They can withstand repeated use. Durable surfaces are less likely to erode. Vegetation, including the lichen that grows on rocks, is fragile and easily damaged by treads. 

Carry in, carry out. Please remove your pet’s waste.

Allow those who come after you the same sense of wonder by leaving flowers, rocks, plants, archaeological artifacts, and other objects of interest where they are. 

Permitted campfires are allowed in the established fire ring. State of Maine laws must be followed. 

When wildlife watching, we recommend using the  Rule of Thumb. Don’t touch, get near, feed, or pick up wild animals. Doing so causes them stress, and they may have a harmful disease to humans. 

Always be courteous to other visitors. Everyone deserves to enjoy a positive outdoor experience. Be mindful of your noise level, be a responsible pet owner, and enjoy the natural world.
