I haven't seen a list of pharmacies along the trail, but you could start by contacting the Rangeley Pharmacy - 2185 Main St. - (207) 864-3984 - and see what issues you may encounter along the trail.

You could look in here to start. Most all of the trail towns of any size have a pharmacy.

Also there are other diabetic hikers here who can give you tips on how to handle your insulin needs on the trail.
