Driving along and come upon this beautiful bridge. Stopped to take a picture and realized there was a tower on the bridge that would take you to the TOP!! Paid the reasonable fee & up the elevator I went. Beautiful view from the top.

Great place for photography of a beautiful bridge across the Penobscot. There is a walking path along the river behind Camden National Bank

Saw this & decided we had to go, a docent explains what you will see & explains you might be overwhelmed due to the top being all glass, quick elevator ride to the top & then a short climb to the top. I am not a fan of heights but I was fine with it. Great views in all directions.... More

So happy I finally came here. This place is super high up but has awesome views! On a clear day you can see for miles. Not expensive so it is really worth doing!

I'm not great with heights, but this is worth it. The view of the area is really quite lovely, and the structure itself is pretty cool. The bridge is impressive. I remember going over the old bridge and feeling more than a little fear as it swayed from side to side. This new bridge certainly gave more sense of solidity.... More

This place is AMAZING! We couldn't have picked a better day to go. The sky was clear and the we had a good fifteen or so mile view of the river and the mountains off in the distance. We're so glad we decided to put this off until Monday of our trip; if we had gone on the previous Friday... More
