Great hike located close to town. Lots of rock scrambles. I would rate this hike as moderate but would recommend hiking shoes for comfort. The views are incredible when you get to the summit.

Hi AliciaJeremy, Glad the visibility improved for you. There are other less difficult trails accessible from the main entrance just up Route 1. There are 5 different mountain summits with views in all directions serviced by 25 miles of hiking trails.

Loved the drive up the mountain and the short easy climb up the stone tower. Gorgeous views of the Camden harbor.

The views from the top of the tower are fantastic. You can see the harbor and the surrounding town and country side. Well worth the price of admission.

We decided to drive up and see the views - not disappointed and stayed awhile to reflect on our terrific week in Maine. NB: Be prepared to pay the entrance fee ($12 per car?)

Nice view of the city of Camden. The place is good for relaxing and for trails. There is a fee to enter the park.

Fun diversion for photos and a small or large hike. We went on a sunny day so we could see forever, probably not a good rainy day activity!

Great views of Camden Harbor and the Penobscot Bay. Great hiking trails as well as a auto road to the top.

The road is paved, two-laned and 1.5 miles in length. Tour buses and motorhomes can climb/descend it with no problem.

It usually opens in May and closes after Thanksgiving to cars. You can always park and walk up the road year round.

There is a parking lot so you may always park and hike up the mountain year round. No sledding hills that I know of but the town owns a ski mountain called the snow bowl that you can sled at.
