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.
Love this trail, beautiful views all along the way. Good trail markings and the weather was perfect.
Few steep points, but once your make it past those it's smooth sailing.
I'd say for a person that isn't a frequent hiker the steep points of this might bring this to a little more than a moderate hike, even though it's not a very lengthy hike.
Well marked, easy, great view.
Black Sheep ..
Great view of Camden at the top.
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.
Easy hike with nice views of the coast.
Great short hike for kids and pets.
very short but very steep, tower is cool and has good views of camden harbor, fun time all around.
