About
Quill Hill is located off Oddy’s Road on Route 16 in Dallas Plantation between Rangeley and Stratton, Maine and is known for its scenic views. Once you turn on to Oddy’s Road, you will follow a very well maintained dirt road for approximately 12 minutes, or four miles, to the top. At an elevation of 2,848 ft., visitors are rewarded with a breathtaking 360º view of Tim Pond, Rangeley Lakes, Saddleback, Saddleback Lake, Kennebago, Flagstaff and the Kibby Wind Power project. It is the only mountain in Maine with a 360º view accessible by automobile, bike, ATV, and motorcycle, and it includes a 4,000 ft. wheelchair path between the two scenic views. No matter what type of transportation you use, please be respectful of the land so that it doesn’t get closed to the public.

Don't miss this if in Rangeley. A true testament of what one mans vision can accomplish. It's about a 5 mile dirt road off of 16, well kept, with absolutely stunning 360 degree views from the top. Picnic tables on top for a lunch or dinner if watching the sun set. Read the brochure on top to learn how it was built. A private road and site, it's well worth the 12 minute ride to the top. Very few sites match this in New England. Would definetly go again if in the area.

Stayed at Rangely lake for a family vacation and made several trips to Quill Hill. Easy drive from town and road is easy to navigate and is well maintained. Great story of how it was made. Highly recommend.

We visited Quill Hill in May. We were surprised and delighted how well maintained the road was. There are picnic tables and a wood fired stove to barbecue on near the top . They make access to the views wheelchair assessable. And all this for free! There was a donation box near the wood stove on the way down. After seeing the spectacular view, and having a pleasant drive up on such well maintained roads, knowing the effort and expense that they put into it so others can enjoy such beautiful views, we were grateful and delighted to have opportunity to support t their efforts. Thank you, Quill Hill! This has been a highlight for us on our road trip.

Beautiful place to visit. It is September 26, and the leaf peeping is amazing. Nice drive up, and beautiful places to set to enjoy the views. Nice easy walking trail for the entire family.

It was a 15 minute drive at 25 mph through the woods but absolutely worth it. We were out looking for moose but happened upon the sign for Quill Hill and decided to check it out. So glad we did and it was just before sunset so when we got to the top it was stunning! If you go at that time bring your bottle of wine and glasses and toast to the fellow who did this drive. There are picnic tables there in an area landscaped with boulders.

The road up is narrow and gravel which must be traveled slowly. It is worth every second of the approximate 4-mile drive.

I worried about a long dirt ascent, with a $10 admission fee. Silly me. This was the best investment of an hour and a ten dollar bill we have made in a long time. Yes it was a bright sunshiny day. Yes it was October and near prime. And no it hasn't rained in weeks...but if you are well stocked with exclamations, and just a tad bit vulnerable to God's blessings of beauty, take the turn off Route 16 and s l o w l y meander to the top...with a camera...and a dictionary!

We have visited this lovely mountain side drive to the submit in the past. This visit included a 10.00 fee which is not necessary. There was also an evergreen tree on the side of the road tacky decorated with empty Crown Royal bags, tinsel and old ornaments. This is not what nature in Maine is about. Very disappointed by these changes and will not revisit or recommend. The view is awesome but getting there is not.

Happened on this by chance.

Great 360o view of the area, a must visit on a clear day.

No facilities just a great view point

We visited Rangeley for our 23rd wedding anniversary. We had been to quill hill 2 years ago so we decided to see the sunset there . It was beautiful!! There is a 10 dollar fee now but worth it the road is very well maintained and visible signs for easy directions to the top.. It was 77 degrees in town but only about 61 at the top so don’t forget your hoodie
