Front trail is a great little hike! Some scrambling needed but really accessible to everyone. You can also DRIVE up to the top from the Camden Hills State Park (Route 1 North) side if you wish. Great view of Penobscot bay and downtown Camden. The front trail is a little off the road so not a lot of people use it. It has a very small parking lot, but it's just a great little trail. Check my "Tracks" to see the trail route. The one shown on the map is the Park Road, which you can hike for free if you wish.

The trail off Rt 52 is shorter, but gives you a great workout! Be careful of wet rocks as you'll be climbing lots of them. The trail is steep, and you'll need your hands to help climb some of the rocks. About half way up is a nice lookout, and a great place to rest or end your hike. Coming down can be trickier, especially with wet rocks, so be mindful where you step. It's worth it though!

Beautiful views! Some steep points. Just rained last night so it was quite slippery under the fall leaves. Nice quick hike!

Few steep points, but once your make it past those it's smooth sailing.

I'd say for a person that isn't a frequent hiker the steep points of this might bring this to a little more than a moderate hike, even though it's not a very lengthy hike.
