New trails are coming to Hancock County after land trust buys pair of Orland peaks

After about a decade of negotiations, a conservation group has preserved two peaks and 183 acres of forest, swamp and blueberry fields in Orland.

Hothole Mountain and Condon Hill have long been on the wishlist for the Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust, and the nonprofit closed on the large swath of land late last month.

The $134,500 purchase will ensure that this area on the western edge of Hancock County remains undeveloped and will safeguard wildlife habitat, said Landon Fake, the trust’s executive director. The group also plans to install a new trail network that would open up a set of views that have been in private hands for years.
