Well worth the somewhat expensive cost of taking your car to the top, we were especially lucky as it was a gorgeous October day and the trees were well on the turn. Don't forget to climb the tower for a 360 view.

Although the views from atop Mount Battie were fabulous, the rest of the park was a disappointment. Hiking trails were poorly marked and maintained, and the trail map offered at the entrance of the park was so crudely done as to be almost useless. There are far nicer places to hike in Maine.

The park is small but at the top of the Mount Batty you have a great view on the sea and the area. It is close to the hotel.

This state park is an unexpected treasure. It's also a bargain, at $4 entrance fee (discounts for seniors) and don't forget to explore the areas on the beach side as well as the mountain side. At the top of the auto road on the mountain side, there is a short climb to the summit of Mount Battie. The view is... More

The trails are not very well marked but the hiking is great. We went up one trail and wound up at a cross with a view of the lake. From there we headed off in another direction and got a great views of the mountains in the distance and then of the bay. Pack some food and spend the entire... More

Nice trail to the top...when you get there you will see all the people who drove up. You can enjoy the views and feel virtuous too.

We have been to this park before - and we happy to return! It is a great place to hike. The cost is $4.50 per person if you are not a Maine resident. You can drive to the top - or you can park at the bottom at a trail head, and then hike up to a point with an... More

Beautiful spot to photograph the town, the Bay, and on a clear day you can see well beyond to the Rockland Lighthouse.
