Very nice and beautiful

Stunning Views follow this fairly rigorous hike. Plenty of friendly folks on our way up and down the trail.

nice trail lots of rocks. nice view...

The view at the top was worth the Hike! My wife and I enjoyed it!

A fun trail, moderately steep in a few places, great views at several points along the trail and at the top.

could still see the top by driving to it. but the walk up was 100% worth the climb. but if you don't want to climb up the rock face you can still see the veiws.

It felt more like a climb than a hike at points, but we still enjoyed it. The views were spectacular! Bring a lunch to enjoy at the top.

Great views at the summit!! Well marked trail.

Kind of a weird feeling climbing up and then running into an asphalt road... Not nearly as rewarding as the Megunticook climb, but still pretty nice view when you get to the top. It can get confusing, especially when you get to the road, but still a lot of relatively stable land

Lots of rocky pathways and mostly horizontal. If you're coming from Megunticook, it's mostly downhill. Be careful with descending, it's easy to trip and fall. Still, the rocks are great and as long as you take it slow there is tons of awesome foliage to check out.

The ocean lookout view is incredible. Pretty tiring walk for a new hiker, but still very rewarding. The actual summit doesn't have much of a view, but it's extremely quiet and very serene. There are so many areas to go from the top, so many different trails and paths.

Great hike, lots of fun. Camden is an awesome place

I think this a moderate to hard trail. lots if trails to access different areas of the mountain side. Each has their own level of difficulty. well worth the effort for the views. Gorgeous!

The views are well worth it!

Great views along the way. Pretty steep and rocky at times for kids and older adults. Worth the hike though, highly recommend.

Great reward of a view at the top, not too many views throughout the hike. The last part of the the hike is on the road, wish it took you all the way up. Fairly easy though tiring hike up the mountain. Did this hike with 1 adult and 2 kids under 10.

gorgeous views at the top. worth the hike.

four of us, kids 9 & 10 and a tibetian terrier did the hike in a few hours. a good trail, nice views, moderate traffic, but everyone friendly

Great beautiful hike!!

Nice views from along the trail and the top.

Beautiful views. Definitely returning for autumn and winter hiking!

Gorgeous views of Camden Harbor, Penobscot Bay, and the surrounding mountains. Cool stone tower.

Tons of hiking options here. Great trail network. impressive views!

Excellent hiking trail network. The trail options here seem endless.

Great hike on a sunny mid-70's day. My husband and I took the trek up and really enjoyed it. The ground was dry and I hiked in TEVA's with no problems. There were a few quick ascents but not truly hard scrambles. Some gorgeous views with nice cool ocean breezes. We went on a Friday, so only encountered a few other people. great spots to have some lunch at the very top "bald'--just be prepared for sun since it is a "bald'. Can kids do it? My friend with kindergarten through 5th graders went and enjoyed it.

Went up with 3 adults and 5 kids. It was a great hike with a rewarding view at the top. Some steep areas,but if you take your time is no big deal. Plenty of rocks and roots so make sure to wear appropriate shoes. We will definitely be going here again!

It is short but requires scrambling on all fours up a very steep rocky section. Would not recommend it for a casual hike with young kids. Great views from the top. Did not feel able to attempt going down, felt it was too dangerous, so did a nice hike through the woods near the road on they way back.

Took our grandkids (ages 10, 7, and 4) -- they loved it! Especially picking and eating the wild Maine blueberries along the way.

Nice hike. I took the family. It was a little steep for the youngest (he’s eight), but he did well.

This trail was harder than I had expected. It’s pretty steep with lots of rocks and roots on the trail. On my way down (after having to literally jump off boulders) I saw a family wearing flip flops, sneakers or hiking shoes are definitely required here! Besides it being a challenge, this trail is really fun. I went after a few days of rain so there were a variety of mushrooms around. There were also wild blueberries at the top so I enjoyed some of those. It was rainy that morning so the rocks at the top were wet, it was hard to navigate so we took our time.
