The Days Grow Shorter, Winter Approaches

The autumn landscape is transforming from a beautiful array of reds, oranges, and yellows to more stark grays and browns. It won’t be long before the landscape is covered in a deep blanket of white. Nonetheless, winter presents a number of new recreation activities in the Belgrade Lakes Region. Soon the lakes will be iced over and the ice-fishing season can begin. There’s fun and adventure to be had in the surrounding hills as well. Instead of hitting the trails in hiking boots, visitors can explore the Kennebec Highlands with snowshoes, snowmobiles, and skis.

On your way to the trailhead, stop by the MLRC for information and trail maps. The BRCA now offers both paper and waterproof maps that are available here for purchase.
