“Great Views”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

For 4.5USD per person (this is for the toll drive up to Mount Battie) you will get the chance to see the fantastic views of Penobscot Bay, Camden and the surrounding area. It is a short drive up to the top. You can also see the coast from Rockland all the way to the Acadia Park.

It is possible to take a picnic up there and enjoy the views whilst eating lunch!

“Spectacular views - worth the effort!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Short but steep hike with fantastic pay off in terms of the views afforded at the top back over Camden and the harbour and out towards the outlying islands. Well marked and maintained. Make sure you wear suitable foot wear though - we encountered someone in formal shoes who was looking very precarious and we found it challenging to find footing in fine and dry weather.

“Mount Battie, Camden”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Panoramic view of Penobscot bay and Camden Marina. During fall its one of the best places to view foliage color. View of the bay and islands from the height of mount Battie is breathtaking. on a clear sunny day you would love to sit back and watch the boats out on the bay.

“Excellent hike”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

You can take in the magnificent view from the top of mount battie by driving ($3.50 per adult) or by hiking straight up the rock face. This is the blue trail and is about a half mile straight up.

This is not for the faint of heart or those that aren't in good shape. Those people should drive up.
