Hike or drive up this mountain from the Camden Hills state park. Great views of Penobscot Bay and beyond. If you like camping try this state park. Great sites and things to do.

Beautiful drive up to the top then views of the town of Camden and the harbor. The scene changes with the season, each as beautiful as the previous. Trails available for a climb up the mountain. Bring a picnic and enjoy the peace.

It's a nice drive and a great place to look down on the town and harbor of Camden. Nice walks and when in season pick and enjoy wild blueberries.

Great trails, well marked, good exercise and beautiful view when you get to the top. You can always drive or walk up the paved road if you're not into hiking.

A must see while visiting Camden. Overlooking the historic town of Camden and surrounding area. Fantastic views of Penobscot Bay. Can't wait to return.

Walked through Camden then went to Mount Battie. Very impressive views. Went in October- the leaves were at peak. Great experience!
