Attention: Public Health Advisory  

Updated 3/28/20

7 Lakes Alliance conserves lands and waters in part for the invaluable benefits that being outdoors and connecting with nature offers to us all. The health of our community, staff and visitors is of utmost importance to us. During this time, we’ll follow expert guidance in response to coronavirus/COVID-19 from health authorities (e.g.; Center for Disease Control (CDC)) and Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL). Our trails remain open now, but please continue to check our website for updates. If you choose to venture out on any area trails, keep in mind that availability of emergency personnel and 7 Lakes staff may be limited.

Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL) guidance (3/24/2020):


  • Avoid crowded parking lots, trailheads, and view areas!

  • Too crowded to park?  Too crowded to distance!

  • Going outdoors?  Stay close to home in low-use areas.

  • Obey all signage.

  • Bring a disposable bag and carry out all trash.

  • Clean up after your dog and dispose of the waste.

  • Dog owners, leash your dogs at all times. Unleashed dogs can cause close social interaction; fur may be a conduit for the virus.

  • Be safe and do not put yourself at risk. First responders are limited because of COVID-19.

  • 7 Lakes advises proper footwear for icy conditions.


To help avoid exposure to COVID-19:


  • Don’t hike or recreate in groups – go with those from within your household and adhere to physical distancing (retain a distance of at least 6’, per CDC guidelines).

  • Carry hand sanitizer and use it often.

  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, and nose.

  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue and promptly dispose of the tissue.


We need to be extra vigilant to limit the spread of COVID-19 -- remain up-to-date on and follow precautions advised by Maine CDC.


Our trails are part of a network of conserved lands including the Kennebec Highlands,

a Public Reserved Land, offering thousands of acres to explore. For current information, visit or
