Naming Survey Opened to Community

December 23, 2022

In 2022, the Rangeley Lakes National Scenic Byway (RLNSB) underwent construction improvements, including new pavement and improved ditching. Throughout the construction, a surplus of boulders was relocated to an area north of the Height of Land, ultimately creating a new scenic turnout.

The new turnout overlooks Mooselookmeguntic Lake, spotlighting Toothaker Island. Currently, the turnout is paved but unsigned.


“The new turnout needs to be named,” stated Amanda Laliberte, Program Director, “and it was suggested that we turn to our community for their ideas. We’ve created a survey in hopes that a community member will suggest the name we’ve been waiting for. We’re looking for your input.”

Created and managed by Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust, the survey will be open until 12:00 AM, January 15, 2023, EST. All submissions are anonymous. 


The suggestions from the survey will be compiled, and the Rangeley Region Wayfinding will move toward a consensus on a name. The final selection will be released in a press release by the end of January.

Name this Scenic Overlook
