...it was SO foggy, we couldn't see a blasted thing. The history was interesting and the stone building at the top was lovely. Admission is more than reasonable, we would recommend checking the weather before visiting.

This is a very nice local park that you can hike in or drive to the top and enjoy the views from Mt. Battie overlooking the Camden harbor.

We did the Nature/Tablelands trail to the top of Mt. Battie for a fantastic view of Camden Harbor and beyond. Ask for a trail map when you buy your ticket. The trails are well-marked but the map definitely helped!

we drove up as the weather was threatening. At the top the view was spectacular. What more can you say or want. Read the history; this was once a private club/residence!!

A great many level hike to great views, enjoyable and memorable. Maps are helpful and several options including car for Mt Battie, hikes or bikes. May have to put up with some inexperienced people from away but easy to avoid.

The views are fabulous from this area. I use a cane and found it very easy to navigate around the area so I'm sure a walker or wheel chair won't have much problem.

Yes. The grades are steep buy brief. There's plenty of parking at the summit and the road loops around to the exit.

The road to the summit of Mt. Battie is only 1.5 miles long. There are 25 miles of hiking trails in this 6,200 acre park.
