This hike offers the most stunning views I've seencin Camden so far. It's a but intense, make sure you bring water.
Signs for it are a bit lacking while hiking though.

This trail does have lots of uphill walking. The view from the top is beautiful and worth the work!

easy trail for anybody who has never hiked slight spots that are a little steep but overall rewarding with a beautiful view

Stunning view and in memory of the girl who lost her life there R.I.P

Excellent trail! Be prepared for a vigorous climb. The view is spectacular.

Awesome hike. Relatively easy, takes about a couple of hours or less. Beautiful views !

Good beginner trail. The view from Ocean Overlook is nice, but from the actual summit there is no view. It took 2.5 hours to the summit and back.

Good hike overall although some areas need to be marked better with the blue dots, especially along the Jack Williams trail.

If you plan on looping from maiden's cliff(scenic trail)to megunticook summit (along ridge trail), ocean lookout, Jack Williams-bring extra water and food as it can take awhile.

Good luck, and happy trails!

Good easy hike, actual summit is disappointing if your expecting a view. The view is only from the lookout, which is very nice! Still early in the season, some mud.

Great day of hiking! Moderate with some less moderate parts.

Fairly easy hike. Great views at the top.

Stunning view at the top! A fun, easy hike that can be completed in a short period or one the whole family can enjoy. Lots of space at the top to just hang out and take in the scenery. Have done this hike a few dozen times now whether it just be at a leisurely pace or for trail running and can say it's great for both!

Amazing views!!!

One of my favorite within 90 minutes of Portland. Get a little of everything. Fairly easy with a few strenuous climbs.

this hike has stunning views and is great for all levels. we went in the fall and boy was it gorgeous! a perfect hike for a picnic up top overlooking the water.

We did this hike along with mount Battie and I would just advise that the "summit" has no views so be prepared, there is a view almost to the top that is breathtaking but once you reach the end, it's just a sign with the elevation on it. Highly recommend mount Battie to do with this hike.

A great spot to learn some history too! The hike is definitely a little bit harder than easy but is still a great trail for kids, dogs, etc.

Slightly challenging. Beautiful views at the top!

Easy hike with coastal views. Family friendly in the summer. Icy in the winter and spring.

Absolutely stunning views! Great hike break if you're heading up to Acadia.

90% of this trail was awesome! What a great challenge for someone training to do the bigger mountains in NH. Warning: after maiden head cliff, this takes you to the bottom and has you follow the road for a bit. This leads you to a trail that is extremely poorly marked! Lost it so many times and ended up in the middle of no where. Definitely stick to the marked trail and you’ll have a much more enjoyable hike!

Not a big challenge, but a nice afternoon hike up to a great payoff looking back at the harbor. The amount of elevation gain for the limited distance does mean a bit of exercise but nothing too strenuous. On a clear day in the spring or fall it is a great way to spend a couple hours in the afternoon.

There was only one trail sign to Mount Megunticook and that was at the beginning. We thougth we were on the wrong trail because when we followed it we were no where near the All Trails location. Turned back to check signs and there was no mention of Mount Megunticook at the last signage. We continued on and the summit is actually the X with an elevation of 1312. There is no view but if you go about another half mile there is a gorgeous lookout over the harbor. Trail was mostly in the woods with a few outlooks.

Last hiked it on August 31, 1997. What can I saw that has not already been said by many visitors about this spectacular hike?

I thought this trail is more difficult than a moderate rating. Scrambling is necessary. We came down the carriage road due to the wind and rain today; and it was very easy.

Lots of hiking possibilities through Camden Hills. This particular stretch can be tricky in places and I would not attempt it in bad weather or when it's been raining. Great views. More than a bit crowded though, especially as you get into the main part of the park and I'd hate to see it on a weekend.
