Million Dollar View Scenic Byway

The Million Dollar View byway emerges above open plains and lakes along US Route 1. You will enjoy panoramic vistas, some of Maine's premiere lakes for fishing, sailing, wildlife and bird watching. The Grand Lakes or Chiputneticook Chain of Lakes serves as part of the international border with Canada. This 7.9 miles (12.7 Km) section of US Route 1 runs between the towns of Danforth and Orient. Most of the byway is characterized by dramatic views of Peek-a-boo Mountain and Mt. Katahdin on the west side, and to the east, Deering, Brackett and East Grand lakes framed by the spectacular western mountain region of New Brunswick, Canada.
