We drove up to the top but you can walk, not far. The view from the top is truly amazing you can see right across Penobscot Bay to other islands as well as the delightful town of Camden.

A perfect spot to spend the night after climbing Mount Battie and spending some time in Camden. My teens found tons of activities to keep them busy.
