The town of Poland sits quietly astride Route 26, about a half hour north of Portland and 10 minutes north of the Gray turnpike exit. The southeastern shore of the clean and clear Thompson Lake belongs to Poland, as well as the smaller Tripp Lake and the three gems - Upper Range, Middle Range, and Lower Range Ponds.
Poland is also home to that elevated piece of land called Megquier Hill which divides Tripp Lake from Thompson Lake and provides wonderful, elevated views of the surrounding countryside. A road trip to the area should always include a drive up Megquier Hill Road.
