Grand views from open ledges atop Ragged Mountain range from the Georges River Watershed east across Penobscot Bay to Acadia and northwest to the White Mountains. Georges Highland Path is a low-impact conservation trail system offering 50 miles of hiking on six distinct trail sections between Montville and Thomaston. From craggy mountain peaks to leafy woodlands to interesting bogs, the path provides some of the most scenic and least traveled hiking to be found on the Midcoast. The Georges River Land Trust has been conserving land in the 225-square mile St. George River watershed since 1987, having protected some 3,500 acres in the region to date. The nonprofit group began building trails in 1996 and was instrumental in establishing Georges Highland Path.
