It's a great scenic vista on the side of the main road into Rangeley, Maine. A five minute roadside stop to enjoy the view, take a photo and consult the map (us analog people).

Nice place to stop and admire the view. Bring lunch and let the view help your digestive system do its thing. You won't be sorry!!
