If you crawled up the front trail to the top of Mt Battie, you've earn one of the best views in Maine. If you drove up, well what can I write that won't get censored. You may have to go to Hong Kong to get a similar perspective, being so close looking down on town with a vibrant harbor.

This is a great hike from the base of the mountain-- really easy, even for unexperienced hikers. It's not terribly strenuous (I hiked it with a head cold) and the pay off is a spectacular view of Camden Harbor.

You can also drive up to the top, if you're not up for the hike. It's about a 45 minute hike up and back. It should only take 10 minutes if you drive up. I've been in both summer and fall- it doesn't matter the season, the view is always worth it!

Great views of Camden Harbor from this location. Foliage was very nice. This is where the mountain meets the ocean.....Awesome.

My husband and I try to get to at least one Historic site a year. Ones that are in our state and this is one of our favorites. The view is spectacular and it is just a wonderfully relaxing place to go. I would recommend this as a destination worth traveling to.

An exciting and wondrous coastal mountain top to visit again and again. It is in Camden state park so there are fees involved. Maine Senior residents have free admission in most of Maine's state parks! visit www.campwithme.com for details on fees.
