Anderson Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A lovely trek through the federal Rainbow Lake Wilderness, this path crosses the North Country Trail and offers looks at several small lakes along the way. A first-time visitor to the south end of the Rainbow Lake Wilderness may think the script calls for a mere walk in the woods, but the soundtrack tells another story.
The haunting tremolo cry of loons echoes across this pocket-size preserve, and a map check reveals why: There are a dozen small lakes scattered around this route. The Anderson Grade, an old railroad grade from the logging era, provides easy access to four of those lakes. Combining that route with a short jaunt on the North Country Trail to Rainbow Lake creates a fine outing, with hardly a mile going by without a new lake to contemplate."
