 Bald Pate & Douglas Mountains
well I could see NH from the summits (Hike-NH) :D

pretty nice day for a couple local hills. Even though they have "mountain" in their names, at 1150 and 1382 feet I call them hills

Dont let the anti-Mainiacs around here keep you down! :D I Had to look up the location of these for myself. Look like nice little hikes I could take the kids on sometime up that way.

And hills, mountains, what the differnece really? Thomas Starr King called them the White Hills long long ago in his famous book. Flying Mounatin in Acadia is the shortest "Mountain" I can think of in the region. Anyone know of any shorter one around??

That looks like a good place, especially for this time of year: No ice and plenty of sunshine. I'll have to look it up as well!

I've been in this area a bit more over the past year. Some really good hikes! Pleasant Mtn and Burnt Meadow/Stone for sure are winners. Haven't been to these yet, but I have vague ambitions of tackling each of the described hikes in the region of the Maine guide, so they're all on the radar!

 Re: Bald Pate & Douglas Mountains
Not even remembering this report specifically, I happened to visit these two peaks today. Bald Pate was definitely nice, with views scattered around, and very much worth the visit since I was in the area.

Douglas was really fantastic. I'm sure helped by a super clear day, but really pretty excellent.

These are probably long-ish drives for very short hikes (I was on/off each in under an hour, I think, with nice summit stops) for most of you, and kind of even me (even starting from my son's school, which pushes me in their direction from the start). But if anybody's looking for new territory (could add a couple other small near-ish peaks as well to make a full day of it), or travels and finds themselves in the area, whole-hearted recommendation for Douglas especially.
