Summer Activities


Welcome to Saddleback Mountain in Rangeley, Maine, your ultimate destination for birdwatching in the heart of the Rangeley Lakes Region. Whether you’re a seasoned birder or just peeping, Saddleback Mountain offers a diverse range of bird species and stunning natural habitats that will make your visit unforgettable.

At Saddleback Mountain, you’ll have the opportunity to observe and photograph an abundance of bird species, including warblers, rare thrushes, finches, and loons. With our hiking trails that wind through the mountain’s forests and hillsides, you can easily explore the local ecology and experience the local birds in their natural habitat. These trails offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape, and they’re also great for spotting birds in their natural habitat. You can take a leisurely stroll through the woods on the Fly Rod Crosby Trail or challenge yourself with a more strenuous hike up Grey Ghost to the summit.

If you’re looking for a more immersive birding experience, consider joining one of the guided birdwatching tours offered by the RANGELEY LAKE HERITAGE TRUST.   Led by experienced naturalists, these tours will take you to some of the best birdwatching spots on the mountain, and provide you with valuable insights into the local ecology and bird species.  There is even a BIRDING FESTIVAL held every June. They also have an extensive list of HIKING TRAILS.
