Douglas Mountain

Douglas Mountain in Sebago, on the West side of Sebago Lake features panoramic views from the stone lookout tower at its summit. Here, you will find the best view of Sebago Lake in its entirety, as well as one of the best views of the Presidential Range. The engraving in the rock next to the summit reads “NON SIBI SED OMNIBUS” – Latin for “Not for one, but for all”. Though the Douglas Mountain Trail starts at the top of Douglas Mountain Road, you must park about a quarter mile prior to that (signs will direct you to the parking lot). There used to be a fee of $3 per car from May through October, with an attendant to collect the money and give information. I haven’t seen an attendant in years, and there is now a box to drop off money (not sure if it is still a requirement). The recommended way to the top is via a loop starting with the Eagle Scout and Nature Trails from the parking lot to the summit, and the Douglas Mountain Trail and Douglas Mountain Road back to the parking lot.
