Owner description: A one-hour-up/one-hour-back hiking trip is the best way to see this mountain.

The view from the top, looking down at Camden and out over the bay and the ocean, really is pretty spectacular. I hiked up most of the way on the trail through the woods and then walked up the road for the last part. The hiking trail is very well marked but fairly strenuous, if you're out of shape like me - some steep climbs, climbing up boulders, walking across two planks over little stream, etc. I took the road the whole way back down. Road is well paved.

What a nice hike and the wild blueberries along the way were delicious. We kept going to Ocean Viewpoint, higher up in Camden Hills State park.

The Mount Battie area has many trails of varying difficulty. There is also the option of driving to the top, then climbing the lookout for amazing wide ranging views of Camden, the harbor, and nearby mountains.

Great state park with a must see view of Camden Maine! The park has great hiking trails and good roads for biking.

It's been quite awhile since I was in Camden but I will never forget Mt. Battie, the place has a beautiful view of the town an water below. My dad always told me to beware of Northerners but everyone in Camden seemed very nice and helpful even when I ordered a milkshake they explained the difference between a Frap & a milkshake.. The place is well worth a visit!
