Douglas Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"A stone observation tower from the 1920s offers great views toward the White Mountains and Sebago Lake. A large boulder on the Douglas Mountain summit bears the inscription non sibi sed omnibus, a Latin motto meaning “not for one, but for all.” This 169-acre preserve was deeded to the town of Sebago by The Nature Conservancy in 1996. The 16-foot stone observation tower at the top adds an enticing feature to this family-friendly hike, which is less than an hour’s drive from downtown Portland. Note that hunting is allowed on Douglas Mountain in season. Wear blaze orange from October through December to ensure that you are seen."
