The Rangeley Lakes Region offers 70 miles of organized ATV Trails open to the public for riding. This 70 miles of trail, now connects to 8 other towns that also have organized ATV Trails. The Atv Riding season starts Memorial Day Weekend, and closes on October 31st of each year. The Camp-2 Trail Riders ATV Club, which was established in 1994, and Rev-It-Up Sport Shop, maintain the 70 miles of ATV Trails in the Rangeley area. The trails are clearly marked with green and white ATV signs, and caution, arrow, bridge, stop ahead, and stop signs. These signs are put up to help people find their way around. The signs are provided to the club by the State of Maine, Department of Conservation. So if you want to satisfy the weekend warrior in you, go and load up that ATV onto the back of your pickup truck and head out to Rangeley Lakes today.

ATV Maps: Are available of the area, with a cost of $3.00 each (price can change without notice) You may purchase maps at Rev-It-Up Sport Shop, Rangeley Chamber of Commerce, Lakeside Convenience, Boss Power Equipment.

ATV park & Ride Areas: Rev-It-Up Sport Shop, Public Parking Lot at the beginning of Depot Street in Town Rangeley, Boss Power Equipment

Main Street Access: Our club received permission to access Main Street using our atvs/side by sides. There are very strict rules to follow when using this Main Street Access. You can access Main Street when you come in via your atv by the town trail, and then, Main Street access starts at the stop sign on Depot Street when you are facing Main Street, you would proceeed with a right hand turn, you ride with the flow of traffic, speed limit is 20mph, you CAN’T PARK ON MAIN STREET OR IN CAR PARKING SPOTS, you can patronize the business’ that have their own private parking, and each business has a sign that indicates this. There are many business’ that you can stop at, gift stores, restaurants, gas stations, convenient stores, ice cream stores, bowling alley, hotels, etc. There are many hotels, B&Bs on Main Street to stay at, to make it more convenient for the atv riders. You can ride right from your hotel room without having to trailer to a unloading zone.

Moose Loop Trail: 170 plus miles incorporates 9 towns, it is the biggest loop that connects the most towns in the State of Maine. It is suggested you plan 2 days to do this trip and stay over night somewhere. Moose Loop maps are available for $4.00 each at Rev-It-Up Sport Shop and at the White Wolf Restaurant in Stratton.

North & South Loop Trails: Nice 20 mile loop trails that are close to Rangeley, if you are not looking for a super long ride.

Quill Hill Overlook Trail: A beautiful scenic overlook, that you should not miss while atv riding in Rangeley.

Camp-2 Trail: A very wooded trail, but so pretty, with Onion Valley look out, this is also a trail that you should not miss while in Rangeley.

Town Trail: Depending on where you start from, this trail leads you in town Rangeley, where you can access many business’ using the Main Street Access.

Swamp Donkey Trail: A rough, raw, challenging trail, not made for two up riding and not for in-experienced people.

Stratton Trail: A nice 28 mile ride one way of course, you can eat and get fuel in town Stratton before heading back to Rangeley

Eustis Trail: A nice 45 mile ride one way of course, you can eat, get fuel, much wildlife.

All of our trails are on privately owned land, it is a privilege to use this land, it is not our right. Please do not leave trash behind, and ride only designated ATV trails. Many volunteers have worked very hard to get permission and to maintain these trails. Please don’t abuse!

Please support the Camp-2 Trails Riders Club (P.O. Box 944, Rangeley, Maine 04970) by purchasing maps and club memberships ($25.00 per person, $3.00 per kid under 18 years, or $5.00 for trail stickers).

Call Rev it up.. they are part of the trail system and we rented a house right down the street from there, the trail system was great…. Call Rev it up they can help you with your questions… and If you go onto Morton and furbish, Rental in Rangely, they have a great deal of houses, but we stayed in "Cabin with a View" and it is just as it sounds, it is a cabin with a beautiful view and they also have a great house and we rode from there to trails…

Is there any plans to open the moose loop trail from Phillips to Rangeley???????????

Carl AshburnerMay 8, 2016 at 8:52 amReply

They closed the trail behind Rev-it-up so there is no access to main trails from there anymore. You would have to park by camp do what you want in down town Rangeley. It is to bad because that was the route to sugarloaf area and beyond

Rangeley is great, there’s been plenty of riding you just have to trailer between the 2 trail heads unless something else has changed. Great views.

What is the situation on dirt bikes? Are they allowed everywhere or just certain sections?

To whom it may concern ..I have lived in Rangeley for 40 years ..I was on Rt 16 Stratton Rd and there were atleast 10 ATV riding down the road like they owned it slowing traffic down to 30 mph..I have seen that everywhere and something should be done about it.. we have ample trails and shouldnt be subjected to this ..out of control!!
