New trail lauded in Rangeley | Sun Journal

New trail lauded in Rangeley | Sun Journal:

"The National Park Service in December 2010 transferred ownership of a small parcel to the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands. That land had been barred from ATV use, which prevented riders from connecting to the trail systems in the area.

The transfer allowed the state to give riders access around Eddy Pond, near the Saddleback Mountain ski resort. The formal dedication of the West Saddleback Connector celebrated the work of community groups, government representatives, private landowners and volunteers.

As keynote speaker at the Rangeley Country Club event, U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the tireless efforts of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club, the High Peaks Alliance and other groups made the celebration possible."
