A. J. “Allie” Cole Scenic Overlook

Enjoy this roadside view of distant Mt. Katahdin while heading up into Maine’s northwoods, because southbound passengers don’t get the chance to pull over. At mile marker 252 on Interstate 95, the view from the Cole overlook takes in sparkling Salmon Stream Lake in the foreground while mile-high Katahdin dominates the horizon.
