Whip Willow Farm Scenic Overlook

About the Whip Willow Farm Easement

This easement is located on the Rangeley Lakes National Scenic Byway below the Whip Willow Farm Scenic Overlook and is privately owned. This easement ensures one will not develop the land below, conserving the historic view of Rangeley Lake as seen from the overlook.

 

There is no public access to this easement, but the community is welcome to enjoy the Whip Willow Farm Scenic Overlook view.

 

During the summer months, visitors may meet a Byway Ambassador who guides visitors to help find the best experiences and services in the region tailored to them.

Conservation Story

RLHT conserved this 40-acre property in 2006.   
THE SEVEN LEAVE NO TRACE PRINCIPLES

FOR OUR CONSERVATION AREAS

Being prepared means knowing where you are going before getting there. Pack a map, talk with hikers and look at trail apps. Choose equipment for comfort, weather, and safety. Plan the trip to match your time, skills, and abilities. 

We strive for one well-designed trail rather than many poorly chosen routes. Stay within the width of the trail and hike single file on durable surfaces, like rock and sand. They can withstand repeated use. Durable surfaces are less likely to erode. Vegetation, including the lichen that grows on rocks, is fragile and easily damaged by treads. 

Carry in, carry out. Please remove your pet’s waste.

Allow those who come after you the same sense of wonder by leaving flowers, rocks, plants, archaeological artifacts, and other objects of interest where they are. 

Permitted campfires are allowed in the established fire ring. State of Maine laws must be followed. 

When wildlife watching, we recommend using the  Rule of Thumb. Don’t touch, get near, feed, or pick up wild animals. Doing so causes them stress, and they may have a harmful disease to humans. 

Always be courteous to other visitors. Everyone deserves to enjoy a positive outdoor experience. Be mindful of your noise level, be a responsible pet owner, and enjoy the natural world.
