Comments
Comments: The South Bog Trail passes through a variety of terrain to the south shore of Rangeley Lake. It ends at an old picnic table where there are views of the lake and South Bog. The trail is well marked and maintained, but does not match the route which is shown on the map. As usual with RLHT properties, the signs often show inaccurate mileage (sometimes showing the same mileage to a landmark on signs over half a mile apart). The trail also seems to go out of it's way to pass over a viewless ridge, so on the way back I followed an old logging road which was shorter and had less climbing. The crossing of South Bog Stream on the Nature Trail Loop was difficult, but manageable without getting wet.
