Looks like potential hikes will be Watch Hill, John Pond Loop, and Pillsbury, for now.

To the dude who mentioned a paddle across Indian then up Baldface: I've always had that one in mind for years. Sadly, my father (longtime canoeing partner) passed away back in March from covid. Might have to invest in a solo canoe now, or drag a family member into our beat-up Royalex Old Town for a trip in memoriam.

Once again boys, thank you very much.
For a shorter hike, I'd very strongly recommend Castle Rock over Watch Hill.

From the ones I've done in the area, my ranking in tiers of bang for your buck...

Tier 1
Castle Rock (shorter), Blue (longer)

Tier 2
Snowy (longer)

Tier 3
Watch Hill (shorter), Chimney (medium), Wakely (longer)

Edit: my avatar is my son and I at the top of Castle Rock many years ago.
