A hike up to the top of Mr. Battle is rewarded with breathtaking views of Camden Harbor and the many islands in Penobscot Bay.

Finding the trail head (on the ocean side) was a nightmare. Once we got to the start, it was a nice hike and great views of the twin and the harbor. We were told it is an easy hike but I rate it moderately difficult.

The second time we had been up on Mt Battie and I never get tired of the view. It does cost to drive up, so be prepared. I think it was $12, but not 100% sure.

Definitely one of Maine's most beautiful spots - used to climb it - now we drove up the mountain. The weather cleared for us and we were able to enjoy the view of the harbor and the islands.

A nice stop with great views of Camden and it's surrounding areas. A bit expensive for those of us who are not locals as there is a toll to pay.

The road is paved, two-laned and 1.5 miles in length. Tour buses and motorhomes can climb/descend it with no problem.
