Located between Lower Richardson and Umbagog Lakes, the Rapid River features 3.5 miles of nearly continuous Class III-IV rapids, making it one of Maine’s most spectacular whitewater rivers. The Rapid River also lures anglers in search of brook trout and landlocked salmon. The Land for Maine’s Future Board supported the acquisition of a 446-acre conservation easement in 1997, encompassing both sides of the entire river and the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust’s Rapid River Preserve.
