This is a great side trip when company visits- on a clear day. Drive to the top, get out, relax, enjoy the panorama of Penobscot Bay. Just take it in, take deep breaths, use binoculars, and enjoy!

We have hiked Mt. Battie as well as a couple of other mountains that make up Camden Hills State Park. Today we took a drive up to the beautiful top of Mt. Battie. The historic landmark, a stone tower, has awesome views from the top....More

Spectacular vista of Penobscot Bay and islands. We took our pups (on leash) and all enjoyed the sights and scents.

We went on a beautiful fall afternoon. The colors were beautiful and the weather was great. Nice easy hike with amazing views of the ocean outlook.

Well worth the hike up but find the tracks rather than use the road. The views are outstanding. A small fee to enter the State Park. There are other walking routes in the park too

We drove up the mountain on a clear day and enjoyed the wide view of the coast, all the way up to Acadia National Park (I think).
