If you go to Camden, this is a must stop. Assuming the weather cooperates, the view is dazzling. The entire Penebscot Bay with a view to Schoodic Mountain. And you can drive to the top!

My daughter and I took trail up to Ocean View and then over to Mount Battie Tower. We got great views of the Camden port, Mount Desert Island and the mountains west of then park. Well with the hike. Medium in difficulty.

I would definitely recommend the Maiden's Cliff hike. The view from the cliff and also further up on the path was so beautiful. Exciting terrain to walk in, not too flat and not too steep. I would recommend driving up to Mount Battie, to see...More

Be sure to go to the top of the summit and get the view if you’re in Camden Maine. If you want to hike you can, if you don’t you don’t have to. Very pet friendly as well.

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.
