The moderate to strenuous Mount Megunticook Trail provides the most direct route to Camden State Park's best views, gaining nearly 1,000 vertical feet. From ledges at Ocean Lookout you can see the summit of Mount Battie, the town of Camden, and Penobscot Bay from Acadia to Monhegan Island, including Vinalhaven, Isleboro, Deer Isle and Acadia. On a clear day, you can see Mount Washington far off to the west.
Perfect length hike in my opinion! Not too hard but definitely makes you sweat. Beautiful view.
Excellent hike for most abilities, nice steady incline. Well marked. Some hikers looking for bigger challenge use this to trail run. Amazing views. Well travelled.
Not many wildflowers. Not sure where that hiker wondered, but nice fern covered, mature forests.
Great hike with amazing views overlooking the ocean and town of Camden. Rocky portions of the trail with some level switch backs up the descent. I recommend hiking poles if you are a beginner hiker.
Little steep but the payoff is well worth it
Great hike with amaing views to Megunticook Lake and the Maine coast
such a nice hike. all of Camden hills is awesome. we cut off trail and found so much cool stuff. we brought my 14 year old niece and she loved it.
Very icy but with the right equipment it should be no problem... Met some great people
Great hike with pretty spectacular views.
More demanding then we expected, bur frequent views were worth the effort. Takes lots of water if doing then full 6 mile loop. Gonna need it.
