Some Good Little Mountains

Here’s a list of mountains I highly recommend that aren’t too high but have views and can be hiked in a morning or afternoon (or sometimes just one hour!). All are under 2,500 feet. (Little doesn’t always mean easy, however, especially if the trail goes straight up, or is interminable!)

Western Maine (Oxford and Franklin counties)

Coastal Maine, from midcoast (Brunswick) through Downeast (including waldo, knox, hancock, and washington counties)

Southern Maine, mostly Cumberland and York counties

Central Maine, (Kennebec and Androscoggin Counties)

Northern Maine (Somerset, Piscataquis, Penobscot and Aroostook counties)

(And a few more recommendations, around the state)

  1. Hi, I wanted to express my gratitude to you for this page. I have three dogs and am always looking for new dog friendly places to explore where I can handle three dogs and that the dogs can handle at their various ages. You do a wonderful job with your page. Thank you again.

  2. Thank you for your comment. I love working on this site, partly because it’s an excuse to go on adventures with dogs! (Although I have to borrow my dog companions because I don’t have any of my own.) Here’s to many more happy outings with your dog crew!

Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
