Area Recreation

ATV Trail Systems
There are over 120 miles of ATV trail systems maintained by The Millsfield ATV Club and the Umbagog ATV Club. These trails are available as legal OHRV riding.   OHRV clubs work together to maintain and promote the trails in the area.  The trails exist because of community, volunteers, clubs, and landowner permission.  Enjoy by riding safely and responsibly.

Northern Forest Heritage Park
This park is located on Route 16 in Berlin and was constructed by local log builder, Tom Bembridge. It is a re-creation of the logging camps which for years were integral to the economics of Errol and the Umbagog Area. The park hosts several events throughout the year and provides guided pontoon boats rides on the Androscoggin River.

Rangeley Lakes Region - Rangeley, Maine
This scenic and recreational area offers the outdoor enthusiast plenty of opportunities. There is fishing, swimming, boating, and plentiful fall and winter fun as well. Take Route 16 north to Wilsons Mills, Maine and follow the signs to Rangeley, and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes. One particularly pretty spot is Haines Landing on Mooselookmeguntic Lake. At the intersection of Route 16 and Route 4 take a left toward Oquossoc and continue on Route 4 to the Landing.  The town of Rangeley is also very quaint and offers year round dining and lodging. There is an information booth in town which will provide you with anything you might need to know about the area. Visit them on the road to the town boat launch ramp.

Rapid River
Since the early 1900's, Western Maine's Rapid River has attracted the serious trout and salmon fisherman from all over the country- It's legendary 10 lb. trout and salmon has made the fly fisherman dream of catching these legends. Although these huge fish are pretty much a thing of the past, it is not uncommon to catch fish in the 5 to 7 lb. range. To further add to its fame, the Rapid River was the focus of Maine author Louise Dickinson Rich, whose national best seller, "We Took To The Woods", written in 1942 at Forest Lodge on the Rapid, described life on the river and the surrounding Rangeley Lakes area.
Although the area has changed, the Rapid River still flows much the same as those days long ago. Instead of log drives on the river, white water rafters and kayakers negotiate the many pools and rapids, on its run from Richardson Lake to Umbagog Lake, sharing its beauty with fishermen, who flock to the river in the hope that maybe, there are still a few 10 pounders lurking in those pools.

Nansen Ski Jump
This steel framed 170' ski jump was constructed in 1936 on Route 16 just north of Berlin and used for Olympic Tryouts. Although no longer in use it is a site to behold. Picnicking, fishing and a boat launch are available at a wayside area across from the ski jump.
