There are plenty of great views in Maine, but only one of them is the Height of Land.
Perched beside Route 17 in western Maine, the Height of Land offers you an expansive look at the sprawling Rangeley Lakes region and the mountains beyond. This viewpoint, on the Rangeley Lakes Scenic Byway,
has been declared one of the finest in the state, if not New England.
Expanded parking and viewing areas make the Height is even better. Folks wanting to take in the view no longer have to risk oncoming traffic by stopping at an insufficient pull-off. There’s even a chance to take a short hike through conservation lands adjacent to the viewpoint.
