MAHOOSUC LAND TRUST
Rumford Whitecap Mountain—Ellis River
Ecologically significant lands paired with mind-blowing scenery and recreation.
Why Act Now?
Prized recreation: hiking, glade skiing, berry picking, paddling.
Stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
The Whitecap summit makes up two rare natural community types, a red pine woodland and mid-elevation bald. At 210 acres, the red pine woodland is the largest example of this community type known in the state.
Public drinking water protection.
Potential industrial wind energy projects and loss of recreational access to other uses.
Pathways to Success
Two separate Land for Maine’s Future funded acquisitions over 11 years, with the support of hundreds of individual donors.
Dedicated volunteers, and partnerships with Granite Backcountry Alliance and other recreation groups and schools.
