Awesome in February!! Spikes were a must. The rock scrambles with new snow and old ice were a little challenging but not a huge deal. My kid chose to crawl over some of it and later slid on his butt- but he liked it. I stayed on my feet. I plan to go back in the summer.

Great hike used spikes only. Beautiful views

I think it was appropriately rated as easy. Even as icy as it was today (Feb 5th), it was still very doable. There are rocks and roots—it’s Maine!—and it’s uphill, but it’s not a technical hike at all, just walking.

This trail goes really fast, the climb is moderate. The actual trail you are taking is called The Megunticook Trail- I don't know why it is marked as Camden Hills, (even the ranger that I spoke to at the bottom wondered about that). Follow the M trail when you first get in (presented a choice right off) and then as you're going up the M Trail goes right and Adam's Lookout goes up and left. I went with Adam's Lookout and Ocean View Lookout- both of which are on the loop. The views as you climb get better and better! It was February when I went, going up was easy and I felt overdressed with my microspikes on my boots. I decided to take the loop back and went down the Megunticook Trail- I found the ice... lots and lots and lots of it! It wasn't a huge deal, I just skirted through the trees and avoided most of it. It was a lot of fun as it kept the climb down very interesting! I'd go back here again. It didn't take a lot of effort or time but it was really pretty up there!

Had fun. Today was icy and the trail was not well marked for a newbie on this trail. Did not complete the entire hike

I didn't do the 13.4 miles- it was not necessary. Instead I parked at Steven's Corner (put Bald Rock Mtn in Camden in AllTrails. That's the parking lot.) At the parking lot I put Garey Mtn to Cameron Mtn in AllTrails. It only took a little while for my dot to fall on the path since I wasn't starting where it wanted me to. I don't know why Garey is even on here- it's not often used and has no view... The dog and I hiked in, most of the hiking was super easy- although it's January the snow was hard packed thanks to snowmobiles. That lasts on both trails, the main access road and then the side trail to Cameron. It was a quick, easy hike up Cameron with a surprising nice 360 view. The dog and I continued on Sky Blue Path to Zeke's Lookout- that was a total letdown. The view at Zeke's was mostly obscured by trees. Still, we had a nice day for it. Including Zeke's we did about 8 miles. From the parking lot to Cameron (up and back) would be 3 to 4 miles.

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.

Went up 1/10/20, pretty icy and a few inches of snow. Would recommend micro spikes. Beautiful clearing at top

Nice short hike with a few options to extend. Good for dogs and a nice option if skiing the snow bowl

this is an awesome trail. very well marked. even okay for the novice hiker. definitely recommend spikes for some very icy spots...but other than that...well worth every moment. just stunning

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.

It's a nice loop trail. I went to Maiden Cliff first. That view really IS pretty. I, then, continued on a did the loop, which still had nice views in spots. It wasn't that bad of a hike. You had one steep section going to the cliff, but that's really not that challenging.

First half mile is sending you straight up the side of Mt. Battie and it is rough. Not too much ice right now but the rock face is smooth and slippery. Coming down took careful planning and lots of caution. I only went as far as the summit of Mt. Megunticook, didn’t want to return without daylight. I will be back to do the whole thing in warmer weather with more daylight hours.

Easy to moderate hike with pretty steep sections, but not bad. Great view from the summit and even better from the tower.

a moderate hike with 3 easy peaks, 2 of which are almost identical. The hike has more and more views the farther along you go. A decent view from the top.

Great view from cliff!

Trail was a bit more challenging than I expected--pretty vertical, exposed roots, lots of leaves, quite a few wet and slippery spots. Beautiful views, brook crossings and varied terrain. We just went to the Megunticook summit and back--around 4 miles.
