Camden Hills State Park signature location is the scenic vista high atop Mt. Battie where sweeping views of Camden, Penobscot Bay, and surrounding islands await. On a clear day, visitors can see Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park. Mt. Megunticook, the highest of the Camden Hills - and highest peak on the mainland - is a moderate climb by foot trail. Other hiking opportunities abound and are well-mapped. The park is located a few minutes north of Camden, a quintessential New England town featuring shops that are within walking distance to the working harbor. Harbor cruises, whale and puffin watches are available daily. Summer nights spent under the stars is a recipe for family fun. Campers who stay at the park's campground enjoy the comfort stations that are equipped with hot showers. A popular fall activity for hundreds of visiting "leaf peepers" is to drive up the Mt. Battie Auto Road and view the surrounding hillside of fall foliage color.

We went up Tablelands to Ocean Lookout, then did the little loop to Adam's Lookout. The connection between Megunticook Trail and Tablelands does not have a sign and is hard to find-- we used both maps and GPS. Misty and muggy, with slippery rocks, but pretty views!

nice views of camden and the bay, all the way to the ocean. dry day so trail was good, quick uphills but a nice fast and rewarding trip. wooden planks run the beginning over ditches. some granite slabs that can be steep and slippery.

On a rainy day - slippery and very foggy, other wise nice loop.

Took a cool deer trail/side trail down from Zeke’s Lookout - fab!

Enjoyable hike that provided a good workout. The hike went to Zeke’s Outlook and back. The scenery was not as impressive as other hikes we’ve done in Maine but there were some vistas along the way.

A pretty, popular, short hike with enough vertical to give you a bit of a workout. Pretty terrain and views. Nice in winter, too.

Challenging trail for beginners or families. Water follows the trail making footing difficult. Wear hiking boots or something that doesn’t slip. Amazing vistas if it’s not foggy.

Monday night hikes after work are the best!

nice loop trail. if going clockwise, the right after the cliffs is a bit difficult to see. goes thru blueberry and raspberry fields so early August is perfect.

Great quick hike, awesome views on a clear day today.

Awesome. 2nd time around and it still rocks!

This is the easiest trail up Mount Battie, but the climb is steep and rocky enough that I would rank the difficulty as moderate rather than easy. Parking at the trailhead is roadside and limited. Great Atlantic Ocean and Camden town views from Mount Battie. Could form a moderate loop using the Tablelands and Carriage Trails. Overall, a great way to summit Mount Battie.

Rather steep and challenging at times this was a fun climb with wild Maine blueberries at the top. Did the loop going off to the right and glad I did as I think it would have been much more difficult to come down the right side. Enjoy!

If you are looking for a reward at the end of your hike this one is for you! The view of Camden and Rockland Harbors from Ocean Outlook are amazing. Terrain is varied, hard to keep your eyes on the trail with the views along the trail. Enjoy Maine!

Great hike with wonderful views on a July day. We parked at the base of the Maiden Cliff trail, walked up to Maiden Cliff first, then took the loop around Scenic Trail. In this direction, you scramble up over big boulders, which would be much harder to descend. Don’t miss the Scenic loop — it rewards you with large areas of open granite scattered with blueberry bushes. After the hike, take a dip at Barrett’s Park, across Route 52.

Beautiful view for not much work!

very rocky. no flat easy spots. great view. 5 and 7 year old completed but challenging.
