What is your favorite wilderness day trip?

Any body have a favorite "wilderness day trip" they would like to recommend? I will define a wilderness day trip as a place you can get to within an hour or so of home and have a nice paddle that gets you to a place which feels well removed from "civilization", and then get back home in the same day. I'll leave it to you to define how much civilization you can tolerate and still feel you have escaped.

For example:

Some of the Boston Harbor Islands are amazingly separated from the city of Boston. If you drive out the tip of Hull and put in at Hull Gut, a short paddle will take you out to some islands which could be in Maine for all you can tell without looking west towards the city.

Please include enough information so other people can see if your favorite is as nice as you say.
