Rangeley

There are no signs for the Height of the Land along Route 17, but look west as you drive toward the town of Rangeley and you'll find one of the most stunning scenic overlooks in Maine -- panoramic views of Mooselookmeguntic Lake framed by New Hampshire's White Mountains. Once in Rangeley, fish for trophy-sized brook trout and salmon at any of its 6 main lakes or picnic beside one of 4 waterfalls.
