It was a glorious day and a magnificent view. There was a wedding on the top of the Mountain, and the ceremony was just over, but it must have been wonderful. Some hiked up, but we drove. There is a tower that takes you even further up, and there is a wonderful view of Camden Harbor and the outlying island.(Fog... More

Just a short drive from Camden through the state park and on a clear day, the perfect place to take wonderful photos of Penobscot Bay and Camden Harbor. Bug spray might be a consideration as we didn't realize until later in the day, that small black bugs (Black Flies?) had enjoyed "feasting" on our exposed necks.

This must be the easiest way to get to a glorious view of the Atlantic, Penobscot Bay and Camden. It's just a 5 minute drive past the park gates. I would skip the hike up and hike Maiden Cliff Trail instead for a more private hiking experience with an equally inspiring view.

I think it was $4.50 for us to drive to the top with our limited time. It was only 1.5 mikes up and worth the views! We even found a few lighthouses marked on the display map that we went to later. Very pretty on a clear day!

A small entrance fee and a short car ride takes you to the top of Mount Battie, which used to have a hotel that later became a lodge. After a devastating fire that wiped out the surrounding forest, the lodge was demolished and later replaced by a stone observation tower. The views from the tower are breath-taking. Highly recommended.

Went up there in a windy but sunny Saturday morning- worth every cent. What a view - if you don't go up there you miss one of the most amazing views around.

You can drive right up to the top, but if you want a little challenge, hike up nearby Megunticook Mountain. The hike was wonderful, but not for those who tire easily.

If there is a clear sky you have a beautiful view on Camden with its pittoresque harbour and the hilly surroundings.
