Outdoor Fun in Rangeley This Summer

Summer is here in Rangeley, and we are so excited to welcome the warmer weather and lush landscapes back into our daily lives! The summer months in Rangeley offer some of our favorite scenic views, perfect weather for outdoor activities, and the same calming ambience that brings our guests back to Rangeley year after year. With Rangeley’s foliage in full bloom and the verdant mountainsides, summer is one of the best times to visit our region. And there’s no shortage of fun activities to immerse yourself in during your summer vacation, so read on and see a few of our favorites! 

In an area as scenic as our region, it’s always a great idea to start at the Rangeley Lake Trail Center. After all, there’s no better way to experience the great outdoors of Rangeley than by getting up close and personal with all of the flora and fauna that make our region so beautiful. With over 55 km of secluded, scenic recreational trails for walking, running, biking and more, these trails provide the best way to experience the sights of summer in the entire Rangeley Lake region. Guided tours are also available, allowing you to learn even more about the surrounding area while taking in the foliage. Don’t forget to bring your bike for even more fun! 

At 4,120 feet in elevation, Saddleback Mountain has been an everpopular hiking destination in the Rangeley area for decades. The views are unmatched and the trails are perfect for avid hikers - you can even enjoy a guided tour with their Outdoor Programs Team. Want to explore Rangeley on the water? Saddleback offers paddling excursions including guided canoe, kayak, and SUP trips. And for those looking to view some wildlife, Saddleback Mountain also offers bird watching trips!

Want to see the beauty of Rangeley from the skies? Book a flight with Acadian Seaplanes! We especially love the Fly & Dine Tour, which includes not only a 2 hour guided tour through the skies of Rangeley, but a delicious 3-course meal once you land! If a shorter but just as beautiful flight is what you’re interested in, Acadian Seaplanes also offers a 30-minute air tour of the Rangeley Lakes region, flying over the Rangeley and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes on our way to the historic Upper Dam. Beneath you, you’ll see fly fishermen, moose, the Richardson Ponds, and more! And don’t forget, when you stay with us at Rangeley Lake Resort, you’ll get 10% off your flight with Acadian Seaplanes when you use the promo code MOOSE PASS at checkout! 

Looking for something a little more sporting this summer? Rangeley is host to two public, 18-hole golf courses that are perfect for spending a warm day engaged in a little friendly competition. Rangeley’s challenging and scenic 18 hole course, Mingo Springs, is located on a hill with a beautiful backdrop of Saddleback Mountain and Rangeley Lake to enjoy while you play. Evergreen Golf Course offers golfers 9 exciting holes, lessons from a PGA member with over 25 years experience, golf cart rentals, a driving range and more, all while enjoying the gorgeous views. 

And these are just a few of the exciting things you can count in this summer, with plenty more happening every day! Be sure to check back here for even more great Rangeley offerings, and ask our front desk for even more suggestions during your stay. See you this summer!
