Maine Trail Map

Snowshoed to the summit from the George's Highland trail great hike get out there!

great view of the town of Camden at the top of Battie.

I wish that I could review it. The trails were very poorly marked. We had a wonderful day of walking, but never actually located Zeke's trail.

Beautiful view from the top! Great place to stay a while & enjoy the vista. I agree with the other poster about it being more than moderate. I hike regularly, but the trail was completely covered with leaves which hide rocks underneath. It was slippery even though dry. Also, the trail wasn’t blazed well in some areas. And as the other poster mentioned, there is a scramble up rocks. But lovely day and hike! Definitely worth seeing!!

Walked all over this park. Great views, very little people during the week. Plenty of restrooms. A great place.

Really pretty views! Well worth the trip! Steep but certainly not too hard.

I thought this would be a normal hard 4000'. I did Abraham the weekend before and that was a cake walk compared to this. Great hike though. Views were hazy that day but still amazing.

Easy walk and fantastic views

Excellent short hike, but possibly more strenuous than "moderate" for inexperienced hikers or people who aren't in great shape. My 65-yo mother-in-law found it too difficult to complete and waited at one of the many exposed spots for us to scramble to the top and back. A few steep spots where you'll depend on the treads of your shoes to get you up or down rock surfaces so if it's wet you'll want to consider your footwear. Beautiful views of Penobscot Bay and blueberry fields. Can't recommend this quick hike enough.

Just breathtaking!!

Very steep but beautiful trail.

easy, maybe slightly moderate.

Incredible ocean views and a touch off the beaten path to escape vacation crowds. Come here for the cliffs and rock formations. Little picnic tables tucked away all over the park. Benches overlook the cliffs. It's about a 15 mile round trip bike ride from downtown Portland to Two Lights. I recommend a first stop in Fort Williams park, a lobster roll @ Bite into Maine and then end here. It's a perfect half day trip!

This was an awesome place to go for a walk. Beautiful scenery, amazing rocks and crashing waves. The iconic lighthouse is fun to see.

Nice enough trail. We paid the $4/person and started at the state park trailhead. Parts of the trail follow the road, which crosses it at least twice. The view of Camden is worth it alone. But the top is also accessible by car, hence the road. So it was fairly busy on the late-July day we went. It is subjective, but we found the Mt Battie portion of the hike only moderate at most in terms of difficultly.

On the way back, we cut over to the the Mt Megunticook Ocean Lookout trail and looped back to the parking area. It was a little more difficult, less people and a nice view (same view at the top as Mt Battie, but higher, a little further away and no accessibility via car).

Both legs of the hike were nice and would do them again, but I definitely enjoyed the Megunticook Ocean Lookout trail best of the two.

This was great place for beautiful sights of the ocean. I'm not too familiar with the mountains in Maine, but this was a great opportunity. The trail was so fun to explore, especially if you're not from the area. We did not grab a map....so a basic walk turned into the whole loop. By the end, we met just such nice people on the way and headed back down. I would definitely check it out again.

Fun little trail for beginner hikers, kids, and families, or someone just looking for a nice easy day out. There is no scrambling on this trail even though the description says there is. It's a regular basic hike with some very short, slightly steep sections that are still only walk ups.

A great aggressive climb with many switchbacks that help attain elevation with many scenic outlooks. The "up" worked my legs and lungs however coming down really taxed my 69 year old knees. The whole hike, with a generous 20" break at the summit, took approximately 2 1/4 hours.

What can I saw that has not been said already? Classic Maine coast. Great for entertaining visitors (who need an easy hike with huge rewards). Can feel crowded in peak tourist season. Take a lunch.

One of my new favorites. A great combination of challenges and rewards. Multiple, what I called "pseudo-summits", that give you a variety of views and places to stop for a beautiful lunch. Views of area lakes, mountains, and the nearby ocean.

A few great views. Great hike

For what this is, basically just a picnic spot near the ocean. It deserves 5 stars. There is no substantial trail in the park.

Nice little trail. Lots of stream access and beautiful terrain. The most picturesque apple tree I've ever seen

Decided to take the family for a hike. From parking area off rt 17 to radio tower its 5.69 miles round trip. Little wet and slippery on some sections of the trail but great view on top.

My parents are from Portland and Biddeford, and I loved our periodic visits to southern Maine when I was young. We enjoyed the Cape Elizabeth area, and I have been to Two Lights many times over the years. I have vivid memories of climbing on the rocks as a kid...and of the foghorn going off once when we were within a few feet of it!
