A hike up a lone mountain to an abandoned fire tower and superb views. Dedham Bald Mountain is not as popular as some of the more well-known peaks in Maine, probably because it is off the beaten path. The quality of the hike and the views from the summit make this one of the better day trips in Downeast Maine. As of 1994, the fire tower at the summit was safe to climb. The tower offers some of the best views around. General location: Northeast of Bucksport near Dedham in Hancock County.

If this hike were in Acadia, it would get three stars as a second or third tier objective. But, since we rented a house one mile down the road, I'm giving it four stars. My mornings were a jog to the base of the hike, do the hike, and then jog back. Great views once you navigate the summit to get around the copious trees. Too bad the fire tower is closed as of August 2008.
