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.

Very steep rock climbing in spots. Take your time going down the mountain! I’m a fairly experienced hiker and I broke my ankle coming down. Wear good shoes and plan your steps carefully. Otherwise a great trail with beautiful views.

Great short hike! Has a steep spot where a couple of my kids got a bit nervous about the climb down. Well marked.

Great short hike! Nice views of Camden at the top. Prepare to be rock climbing! But overall was a great trail!

Rocky climb. Rougher on knees bc of angle and stepping down onto rocks. Cool views throughout the hike.

Winter, 01/2020, very steep and icy and rocky and is literally a hold-on-for your life scramble to the top. Ice cleats, yak tracks, strongly recommended, would not have made it to the top without them. Beautiful view. Did not know there was an auto road to the top.. until i got to the top..kind of disappointing.

It's a short, but slightly challenging hiking, especially, if the rocks are wet. It doesn't take too long to reach the top. The views are very rewarding, especially if you climb the tower.

Great experience climbing and scrambling the less traveled trail. Got some great views not seen from the parking lot.

Awesome trail! I would say it takes an hour. I forgot to pause my recording so it’s a little skewed. Can be sheer in some spots, my 63 yo mother had some difficulties but she’s also a little uncoordinated

Awesome hike with great views. Middle part is a little tough as it’s basically vertical.

Our kids at 4.5 and almost 7 were not ready for this. The 7 year old probably could have kept going but we turned around halfway.
