Spectacular vista of Penobscot Bay and islands. We took our pups (on leash) and all enjoyed the sights and scents.

We went on a beautiful fall afternoon. The colors were beautiful and the weather was great. Nice easy hike with amazing views of the ocean outlook.

Well worth the hike up but find the tracks rather than use the road. The views are outstanding. A small fee to enter the State Park. There are other walking routes in the park too

We drove up the mountain on a clear day and enjoyed the wide view of the coast, all the way up to Acadia National Park (I think).

Despite being slightly overcast today, the views at the top of Mount Battie are still worth the trip and the $12 per car price tag. Beautiful views of Camden harbor, the colorful hillsides, and ocean views. A cool stone "tower" offers even better views of the surrounding area. Whether you choose to hike up the hill or take your car... More
