Combine six trails for a grand traverse over the long ridgeline of Mount Megunticook from Maiden Cliff to Mount Battie. The mountainous terrain of Camden Hills State Park lies along the west shore of Penobscot Bay in the towns of Camden and Lincolnville. The Camden Hills share many characteristics with the mountains of Acadia on Mount Desert Island 30 miles to the east: fine softwood forests; bold cliffs and ledges; and far-reaching vistas of ocean, lakes, and mountains. At 1,385 feet, Mount Megunticook is not only the highest summit in the park, but the highest mainland mountain on the Atlantic Coast of the United States.
