We decided we would hike to the top. So we started out and it was a typical forest hike with varied terrain. We were confused at one point though when it looked like we were heading down instead of up. We were worried that we...More

Our hike up Mount Battie was challenging but well worth it! We went on a day where the humidity was low so the experience was not overwhelming. The view at the top was breathtaking, overlooking the harbor in Camden and beyond. Would recommend to anyone!...More

This is a great hike, although you can drive all the way to the top. Don't believe any local information or what you are told - the hike from the lowest parking lot is a 1.5 mile trek (according to our GPS), not the half...More
