as one reviewer said, best views of penobscot bay. we hiked mt battie the day before and its wayyyy better. the north side of the loop shares a trail to mt frolock, so dont let that throw you off. its also less traveled, so a nice walk

We didn't think the views from Mt. Battie summit could be beat until we did this hike. It was fairly short, and we took the out and back which was said to have a more gradual ascent. No scambling required. The view from the top was spectacular. Photos can't do it justice. As we sat on a rock resting and taking it all in an eagle glided by right in front of us.

I really enojoyed this hike. We started from the back and ended at the trailmarker for it. the veiws were stunning, even on a slighlty foggy day, and the hike wasn't very difficult.
bring some snacks, water, and enjoy the views at the top!

This should be rated as MODERATE

Technical and steep in spots. Some of our group really struggled.

The views are so worth it and it’s an awesome hike! Not super challenging, but definitely not an EASY..

Like Maiden Cliff, another great Camden area hike that isn't difficult and suitable for all experience levels! Beautiful view of the ocean from the top.

One of the best views in Maine! The last half mile is a pretty good hike uphill. The snow isn’t packed down in all the areas. Hiked up with my running shoes and spikes - worked fine enough! First part of the trail is as wide as a road and perfect for cross country skiing.

Easy hike. The trail was well marked. The view at the top was amazing. We had packed a lunch and enjoyed that once we reached the summit.

Good easy hike. We did not loop, nor lollipop. It was an out and back for us. Felt like 3.5 - 4 miles. Unsure of true distance. Great views. Only thing we didn't love was the double track (triple track, really) for beginning of hike. Once it branches off to single track 1/2 mile from the summit, it felt like a true hike.

Note that as of 2017 the Google Maps driving instructions are wrong (have been for over a year). The trail head is at the intersection of Youngtown Rd and Rt 173 (Beach Rd), NOT Deantown Rd. as listed by Google.

Used to live fifteen minutes from this trail and used to walk it all the time, just recently visited the area again and wanted to hike this trail. This is a pretty moderate trail with about a third of it on a nice dirt road running through the Camden hills. The view at the top is very panoramic allowing you to see for miles. The front view from the summit has a perfect overlook of most of Penobscot Bay and all the islands (specifically Islesboro) therein. Off to the left you can see most of Camden harbor and the lovely yachts that are out in the harbor, looking right will allow you to see Northport, Belfast and Searsport areas. Highly suggest hiking this trail, you will not be disappointed.

Have been a bunch of times, and would suggest making it an overnight trip. Staying in the lower lean-to at night, as it has less traffic. Then in the mornig taking the 2 min hike to the top to see the sunrise.

Went on 5.7.2017. Made it to the top as the fog bank cleared. Beautiful views. Children friendly.

Went last week and loved it! There was snow in many areas and other areas were muddy and slippery but the view was spectacular. We could see Mt Washington from one point and then also the ocean. We ate lunch at the top and couldn't have been happier. Good mix of sunshine and shade. Took our pup along, no problem. Well marked trail and a small parking lot. Our first hike in Maine! Great hike!

Beautiful sunny day with temps in the twenties. Two inches of snow at the base, with four to six at the top. Nice leisurely hike on the woods road, then a good workout the last, good, half mile. Amazing views!!!!!!!!!!! Can't beat them! Saw several people on the woods road, but none on the side trail to the summit. Our two dogs that loved it as well.

Very nice view. The walk up from the lower entrance had some areas that were a bit challenging, but not difficult. The decent was easier.
