Worth the time for the view! It was my idea and the others I was driving were skeptical to leave Camden for the trip up, but once we were there it was worth it!!!

Whether you choose to drive or hike up to the top of Mount Battle it is worth a visit. You get an incredible, bird's eye view of Camden and the surrounding area.

We decided we would hike to the top. So we started out and it was a typical forest hike with varied terrain. We were confused at one point though when it looked like we were heading down instead of up. We were worried that we were on the wrong trail so headed back down. I would have to give the... More

Our hike up Mount Battie was challenging but well worth it! We went on a day where the humidity was low so the experience was not overwhelming. The view at the top was breathtaking, overlooking the harbor in Camden and beyond. Would recommend to anyone! If you can't hike the trails, then you can drive to the top. Something not... More

If you are in Camden to enjoy outdoor activity like hiking, biking, camping, you should visit Mount Bettie. There is a campground, the internet service was better on top of the mountain than in my room of the hotel I stayed in. Plus, it is very inexpensive.

We opted to drive since we had a time limit,and were glad we did. The hike up is pretty steep with a good deal of underbrush, but the views are wonderful. We opted to walk some of the trails at the top.Suggest you wear a good sturdy closed shoe, definitely not flip flops. There is a momument at top that... More

The view is Stunning - to say the least. In all seasons, it's great to make a trip to the top of Mt. Battie. You can camp above the coastal road (closer to the Mt.) or below, closer to the harbor. Some people drive to the top, others park & hike. There are also lots of trails throughout that lead... More
