Bigelow Mountain Preserve is a 36,000 acres (15,000 ha) state-owned nature preserve in the western part of the U.S. state of Maine.[1][2] Located in the village of Stratton within Eustis, Franklin County, Maine, the preserve was created in 1976 in order to stop a proposed development of a ski resort in the area.[3] It is home to Mount Bigelow, one of Maine's highest mountains at an elevation of 4,145 feet (1,263 m), and Flagstaff Lake.[2]

The namesake of both Bigelow Preserve and Mount Bigelow is Major Timothy Bigelow, a Revolutionary War patriot who climbed Mount Bigelow in October of 1775 "for the purpose of observation."[4]
