Description: At just over 6,500 acres, the Kennebec Highlands Public Reserved Land unit is the largest contiguous area of conserved land in Central Maine. The unit includes the summit of McGaffey Mountain, the tallest peak in Kennebec County, along with two other hiking trails, both of which offer stunning overlooks of the surrounding Belgrade Lakes region. The Kennebec Highlands Public Reserved Land unit features wetlands, streams, and five undeveloped ponds where fishermen can often be spotted, particularly in the spring and early summer.
