Rangeley Lakes National Scenic Byway

Scenic Drive in Rangeley Lake

For a fabulous drive, head out of Rangeley on ME 4 and turn left (south) onto ME 17. From here there's some magnificent scenery, with the pull-off at Height of Land providing one of the best panoramic views anywhere in New England. Keep going south until you reach Coos Canyon (about 30 miles from Rangeley) – a fine picnic spot near a gorge.
