Great day of hiking! Moderate with some less moderate parts.

Fairly easy hike. Great views at the top.

Stunning view at the top! A fun, easy hike that can be completed in a short period or one the whole family can enjoy. Lots of space at the top to just hang out and take in the scenery. Have done this hike a few dozen times now whether it just be at a leisurely pace or for trail running and can say it's great for both!

Amazing views!!!

this hike has stunning views and is great for all levels. we went in the fall and boy was it gorgeous! a perfect hike for a picnic up top overlooking the water.

We did this hike along with mount Battie and I would just advise that the "summit" has no views so be prepared, there is a view almost to the top that is breathtaking but once you reach the end, it's just a sign with the elevation on it. Highly recommend mount Battie to do with this hike.

A great spot to learn some history too! The hike is definitely a little bit harder than easy but is still a great trail for kids, dogs, etc.

Slightly challenging. Beautiful views at the top!

Easy hike with coastal views. Family friendly in the summer. Icy in the winter and spring.

Absolutely stunning views! Great hike break if you're heading up to Acadia.

Not a big challenge, but a nice afternoon hike up to a great payoff looking back at the harbor. The amount of elevation gain for the limited distance does mean a bit of exercise but nothing too strenuous. On a clear day in the spring or fall it is a great way to spend a couple hours in the afternoon.

One of my favorites.

There was only one trail sign to Mount Megunticook and that was at the beginning. We thougth we were on the wrong trail because when we followed it we were no where near the All Trails location. Turned back to check signs and there was no mention of Mount Megunticook at the last signage. We continued on and the summit is actually the X with an elevation of 1312. There is no view but if you go about another half mile there is a gorgeous lookout over the harbor. Trail was mostly in the woods with a few outlooks.

Last hiked it on August 31, 1997. What can I saw that has not already been said by many visitors about this spectacular hike?

I thought this trail is more difficult than a moderate rating. Scrambling is necessary. We came down the carriage road due to the wind and rain today; and it was very easy.

Lots of hiking possibilities through Camden Hills. This particular stretch can be tricky in places and I would not attempt it in bad weather or when it's been raining. Great views. More than a bit crowded though, especially as you get into the main part of the park and I'd hate to see it on a weekend.

Great day. Great hike!

My wife and I loved it. Beautiful hiking! Rated moderate but wasn't all that difficult. Rated a little higher than easy would be better to say. The views were absolutely fantastic. The cross and story associated with it was very sad but good.

I want to let people know that aren't athletes or experienced hikers. This is very doable. It is not easy by any means, but it is very much worth it!!!! Remember lots of water and bug spray. And do not forget your camera!

Was an awesome little hike with our two small dogs. September weather was beautiful and the views of the bay and surrounding ocean was very nice!! Was great for a short hike.

The views along the way & from the top were spectacular. I am an avid hiker but my knees have gone achey recently. I found the bald rock section quite challenging. I did have to be super careful as it was also quite steep. I was determined to get to the top & was glad I made it. Views are enormous. I did ask for a ride back down as downhill is harder on knees than uphill.

The effort to views ratio is quite favorable here.
Somewhat crowded on the trail itself, but there are so many exposed ledges up top that you're sure to find a place of your own to relax and enjoy the views.

Great, short hike.
Amazing views from numerous ledges.

Absolutely gorgeous. But I wouldn't have rated it easy. Easy to moderate. Couple of really steep spots but gorgeous!!

New hikers, fun challenge, kid friendly (14 and 12yo), fabulous views!

great trail. easy enough for a 3 year old.

Nice hike relatively quickly and easy. The story and history you get along with the view was pretty neat.

A really great trail to take the family. Relatively easy if you are a hiker but doable if you're not. Some really nice views at the top and worth the trip! And super easy to get to (only a few minutes) from downtown Camden.
