“Beautiful views and good hiking”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The views and photo opportunities were great. My husband climbed the tower at the top. I'm not great with heights, so I skipped that, but he said the view was worth it. We took a hike, about a mile over rocky terrain, but easy enough. The cairns and rock rings left by other hikers were interesting. The greatest thing was the view of Camden Harbor, the islands and landscape in the distance.

“Spectacular View”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The view from atop Mount Battie is amazing. You have a 180 degree view of Camden, the harbor and the surrounding islands. You can also see Mount Desert Island and Blue Hill from there.

“Climb and View”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

The views are terrific! This is the smaller of the two to climb. It is a terrific park area to visit and spend 3-4 hours.
