Hiking Maine: A Guide to the State's Greatest Hiking Adventures (Falcon Guides)

"Doubletop Mountain rises west of Nesowadnehunk Stream. The two peaks offer fine views across the valley as well as of Katahdin. Situated on the western boundary of Baxter State Park, you can see most of the park from the summit. If you turn away from Katahdin, you can see across the lakes country south and west of the park. The middle section of the climb is very steep, but involves only a little rock scrambling. The easiest and safest route is to hike out and back from Nesowadnehunk Field; the trail from Kidney Pond is steeper and longer." Read more
