Front trail is a great little hike! Some scrambling needed but really accessible to everyone. You can also DRIVE up to the top from the Camden Hills State Park (Route 1 North) side if you wish. Great view of Penobscot bay and downtown Camden. The front trail is a little off the road so not a lot of people use it. It has a very small parking lot, but it's just a great little trail. Check my "Tracks" to see the trail route. The one shown on the map is the Park Road, which you can hike for free if you wish.

I cut across from megunticook to mt battie... Great trip but icy...
Met a large group headed up... Fun solo but the group thing would be fun too

The trail is demanding and a little slick, but a great challenge with the beautiful payoff of the view!

Nice hike for the family. There is a stone tower at the top which offers even more amazing views. I made this hike in the dark so I could film a time lapse of the sunrise- It was well worth it!

Steep, short. Requires all fours in the steepest sections

Fun, interesting hike but more difficult than expected (on the way down). My 12 & 16 year old boys loved it but we ended up driving to pick up my 10 year old daughter who was afraid to hike down the rock face. The view is amazing at the top and you get rewarded with nice views in several locations on the way up.

Amazing view, great hike. However, I would not recommend for children under 8 years of age. Very steep at times, making it not only difficult on the hike up, but very difficult on the way down.

Great trail. Starts outside the park and ends at the top of the mountain, which should be noted for those who go from the park down.

This is a great vertical scramble on the southern side of Camden Hills State Park.

I would strongly discourage you from bringing dogs on this route. It's way too vertical. You are much better off going to the main entrance of the State Park and enjoying the trails that start there.
