Easy drive but also a nice walk. You really haven't seen Camden if you haven't seen it from the Mt Battie tower.

Visited Mount Battie while staying in the Camden Hills State Park. While hardy folks will hike up to the top, I elected to drive. Yes I know what you are saying. Anyway the trip was worthwhile with views 360 degrees around - Penobscot Bay, Camden and its harbour, as well as the mountains inland. If you are staying in the Park this trip is all included in the cost of your camping permit.

The view from Mount Battie gives you a wonderful perspective of the coast and harbors. Be sure not to miss a chance to do this on a clear day. There is a small charge for entry to the park.

We could see the harbor of Camden below. It was a foggy but the view was still panoramic. It must be spectacular on a crisp clear day.

We walked straight from the Lodge at Camden Hills. 10 min walk to the park entrance, $9 fee for my wife and me to walk into the park, and about 35 minutes of walking on the Mt. Battie Road got us to the top. My wife was pretty winded, but overall a fairly short and not very difficult walk. We did not take one of the many trails as we wanted the most direct route to the top. With more time, it would be fun to experiment with the trails.
The view was wonderful, and not very crowded. The walk back down was the hard part.
Probably the single most interesting site in the Camden are. Well worth the hike.
