Glad we were able to drive to the top, get out and enjoy the view. Lots of people hiking along the trails enjoying the weather and the climb.

We drove to the top of Mount Battie. The view was amazing! We spent about 45 minutes at the top, but with the leaves being at the peak we enjoyed the drive up.

Yes, fireworks can be viewed from the summit of Mt. Battie. It's a different perspective, looking down rather than up. The fireworks usually are shot from a barge in the harbor - about 1.5 miles from the summit. We used to... More
