NORTHERN FOREST CANOE TRAIL: Locally, this trail comes up through Umbagog Lake, the Richardson Lakes, Mooselookmeguntic and Rangeley Lake, and continues with a long portage to the south branch of the Dead River. Spring is the ideal time to run this route, when melting snows raise the area’s water levels, although the lakes and ponds can be paddled from Spring to Fall. Canoeist should plan on spending approximately two to five days on this local section of the trail. A detailed, color map, which includes local hiking trails, can be purchased from the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust for $5.95 plus tax. Please write to: Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust, P.O.
