Douglas Mountain is the highest of the Saddleback Hills between the Saco River and Sebago Lake. The stone tower on its summit offers fine views of nearby Sebago Lake, the White Mountains, and the Maine coast. The trail climbs steadily from a damp hardwood forest to the rocky summit, then descends steeply down exposed bedrock to Douglas Mountain Road. The Eagle Scout Trail wanders through a hardwood forest, crossing and sometimes following an ATV trail. There is little underbrush beneath the tall hardwoods, their canopies woven together, blocking out much of the light. The trail leaves the wide multi-use trail and begins a short rocky climb up out of the hardwoods into a mixed forest. Dappled sunlight allows for a busy understory of shrubs, moss, lichen, and herbaceous plants.
