Loon Echo Land Trust is a non-profit dedicated to protecting land in the northern Sebago lake region.
In 2017 it celebrates its 30th anniversary with 6700 acres preserved. Currently there are 13 parks preserved for multi-use recreational opportunities.
It was my good fortune to hike Raymond Community Forest, an amazing community vision, consisting of 356 acres including much of Pismire Mountain and a large forested area beside Crescent Lake.
There are 3+ miles of multi-use loop trails offering scenic views overlooking Crescent Lake and a moderate hike up the mountain. What is your pleasure – wildflowers, wildlife, views, photography, or just out for a walk. I enjoyed viewing a mushroom community growing on a stump.
Check out the Loon Echo Land Trust website at www.loonecholandtrust.org to download a trail map.
A great choice in all seasons.
Trail head parking is located on Conesca Rd.
