Love this trail system. Well-worn trails, well marked, great for family hiking.

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 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.

The directions for this trail is wrong, just go to Camden Hills State Park. There's a cash fee to enter, only $4 for Maine residents. The first part of the trail to the "Ocean Lookout" is heavily trafficked, is straight up for most of the way but fairly short. The views are can see all of Camden, the whole range and Camden Snow Bowl. On a clear day you can even see to Rockland. The actual summit of Mt. Megunticook is .3 miles down the Ridge Trail. Most people don't go past this point so if you're looking for a private, relaxing experience this is the way to go. My only complaint is the blue blazes need to be repainted and the trail at some points isn't really clear. I had to stop a bunch to make sure of where I was going. I ended up taking the Ridge Trail to Maiden's Cliff and back.

Overall really nice hike! You may benefit from trekking poles on your way back through some of the steep sections. There are also a lot of wild blueberries in late July/early August. :) Free snacks!

Megunticook, Tablelands, and Mt. Battie made for a really beautiful 4hr hike that was fairly easy. Nice start to Spring hiking!

We were originally going to go to MT Battie but got side tracked by following the Ocean Outlook trail. There was 1200' of elevation changes. It took us roughly 4 hours round trip and it was grueling for me as a mildly unhealthy person, but it was a perfect jump start to a new healthy outlook. The vista was beautiful. Well worth the sweat, tears, and complaining.
