This tract is a classic western Maine mountain lot with approximately 6,000’ of frontage on Mt. Blue Stream. There are amazing 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains including: Mt. Blue, Mt. Abraham & Saddleback mountain in the distance and Spruce, Day & Bean mountains close by. Improved interior access road gets you to the heart of this tract where you can get away from it all and enjoy the great Maine outdoors. The topography varies from extremely steep along the banks of Mt. Blue Stream to rolling topography in the interior portions reaching an elevation of just over ±940’. Plenty of wildlife sign and recent cutting have created forest edges where wildlife can thrive. Mt. Blue Stream, originating from Mt. Blue Pond, affords some great fishing for wild Brook Trout. The setting along Mt. Blue Stream, although quite steep in places, is amazing and very picturesque. An ±8 acre clearing was recently completed creating views of some of Maine’s highest peaks. Most of the lot has been harvested leaving behind vigorous stands of young growing trees along with mature well-wooded areas between the harvested sections. This desirable tract is located less than 15 miles from Farmington and just under 30 miles from Rangeley. Farmington, home to the University of Maine at Farmington, offers just about every amenity one would need. Rangeley, to the north, offers some of the best outdoor experiences found in northern New England. There is just over one mile of frontage on Route 4 with power. Outdoor activities nearby include fishing and recreating on the Sandy River, ATV trails and of course snowmobiling.
Sandy River, just the other side of Route 4 from this property offers good paddling and some good sections of whitewater rapids. From the nearby town of Strong at Devil’s Elbow along Route 4 is a great location to start an 11-mile paddling journey thru several Class II rapids on your way to Farmington. The historic Fly Rod Crosby 45-mile hiking trail is nearby and steeped in history of the famous fisherwoman and Maine’ first registered guide, Cornelia “Fly Rod” Crosby.
The ±8,000-acre Mt. Blue State Park is nearby offering miles and miles of hiking trails, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and access to Webb Lake. Mt. Blue is just over ±3,000’ in elevation.
