Gorgeous Views

The Mt. Katahdin Scenic Overlook on I-95 in Medway, Maine is a place you want to visit every time you travel through the area.

It’s always different and gorgeous, even on an overcast day. It’s even better when the skis are clear. We have a gallery below that highlights some of the features the park.

Take a Break

Not only is it a breathtaking view, but it’s a good place to take a break if you’ve been traveling a long time and need to stretch your legs. There are picnic tables to have a quick bite. It’s a place to relax and with a calm and quiet surrounding just off the busy interstate.

Memorial and Plaque

There are also some monuments with pictures and the history of the area. Take time to read some of the information in the gallery. It really puts things in perspective. A plaque is mounted on a huge boulder that pays tribute to A.J. ‘Allie’ Cole, the “Maine Highway Pioneer.”

These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
