in Rangeley Lake

The expansive view of island-dotted Mooselookmeguntic Lake (the largest of the Rangeley Lakes) as it sweeps north toward distant mountains is astounding. Vistas of undeveloped forest stretch for up to 100 miles; you can even see the White Mountains in New Hampshire. The dogged Appalachian Trail runs alongside the viewpoint, and an interpretive sign shares a few details about the 2190-mile hiking trail. The overlook is on ME 17, around 18 miles southwest of Rangeley.
