Hike new section of Fly Rod Crosby Trail

RANGELEY — The High Peaks Alliance will lead a fall hike on the new section of the Fly Rod Crosby Trail at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, meeting at the Saddleback FRC kiosk. The hike will follow the trail from there to Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust’s Cascade Stream Gorge Trail and end in Sandy River Plantation, going about 6.5 miles.

The terrain is mostly downhill and includes a combination of footpaths and multiuse trails. This is an “end-to-end” hike, not a loop trail, so carpooling will take place from the end at the parking lot of the Cascade Stream Gorge Trail back to Saddleback.

The hike is weather permitting. Contact Betsy at 207-639-3432 for details.
