Mount Blue

If you’re an enthusiastic hiker, you can’t attend U-Maine Farmington for four years, and not hike Mount Blue.  It is one of the first mountains you see from Route 2 when approaching Farmington from Skowhegan, its distinct shape can be seen from many low-lying hills in the area, and Farmington’s regional high school and several businesses in the area share its name, making it a characteristic icon for the Farmington area.  There was once a fire tower on the summit, which was replaced in 2012 by a radio tower with a lookout platform.
