This is a beautiful scenic look out with a nice place to park your car. This is only a short way (1/2 mile or so) from Appalachian Trail. You can see lots of mountains and several lakes. It is a must see when visiting Maine.
We had seen this attraction listed in Maine attractions & we drove 20+ miles on Route 17 to see it. We are simply amazed at the wonderful scenic overlook appropriately called the "Dramatic Overlook". It is indeed a picture taker's paradise that features an incredible view of Mooselookmeguntic Lake. If you are in the area, NOT TO BE MISSED attraction!
I've been enjoying this view for 45 years and never tire of it. Western exposure makes it perfect for a sunset picnic. Take a stroll on the Appalachian trail which crosses the road at this point as well.
This overlook is breathtaking and amazing. It is a great way to see the Rangeley Lakes and the mountain ranges around the area. The Appalachian Trail crosses near this overlook. Highly recommend driving to the top to see the view.
I never pull over and stayed for almost 15 minutes to absorb the magnificent beauty of this landscape. The view, a place to stop and eat the lunch or snack you have been waiting to eat. Hikers on the Appilacian trail walk cross over the road here. And the peace of scenery is clearly a Zen moment...
