A Hike In Photos – Branch Lake Public Forest
A Great Warm Winter Day For A Hike
Today I hiked Branch Lake Public Forest! The Entrance is blocked with snow so as of 2/23/19 you’ll have to park on the side of the road (Use Caution!) From the Main Rd. You’ll hike about 1 mile in where you’ll find the Parking Lot.
In 2010, Frenchman Bay Conservancy collaborated with the City of Ellsworth, the Trust for Public Land, and the Forest Society of Maine in order to protect Branch Lake. Branch Lake is the singular source of drinking water for Ellsworth, eastern Maine’s largest coastal city. The lake also serves as a source of timber harvesting and public recreation.
