Wasn't sure what to expect...So glad we went to the top after paying $4.50 per person. The view was breathtaking. The water, the islands, boats, the village. Took lots of pictures. Next time will bring a picnic lunch and hang out longer.

Make sure to take some of the trails because the views down to the Harbor in the village fo Camden are spectacular and offer the Maine you think of with the boats in the harbor.

The drive to the top is steep but not really long. You can also park and hike through the park, but we chose to just go up to the top. There is a breathtaking view of the harbor and the surrounding hills as a reward!...More

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.
