If you want a quick little hike with great views, this is it! We went after breakfast on one beautiful clear morning. The hike is steep in places, but quite short (<30 min) and rewards you with several beautiful lookouts on the way. Camden Harbor & the bay are stunning on a clear day from up there!

A cold very windy (even for coastal Maine) April day. We walked up the road, which was closed to traffic. Short hike but steep. This wind was howling. But that view of Penobscot and Camden is magnificent. Blue Hill, Mt Desert, the innumerable islands, and charming Camden down below. Worth the hike even in the weather.

Enjoy the short hike from the base OR drive to the top. The view of Camden Harbor is worth the time. The stone structure at the top will give you a nice view of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding scenes.

You can drive to the top or hike to the top. Either way, you'll love it when you get there. Bring a picnic.

Beautiful views of Camden harbor and great hiking with the family. You just have to make sure you go up on a clear day.
