It is well worth the effort of walking up to the top. From the peak, you can take in the stunning views of the Maine shoreline and all the islands off the Maine coastline.

For a small fee you can enter and drive to the top with outstanding views of Camden Harbor! Totally worth it! Some say best views in Maine, and I don't doubt it!

Awesome almost 360` panoramic view of Camden harbor & Penobscot Bay. The short drive to the mountaintop lookout is $6 a person & worth it!
