A hike to a rocky outcropping above Megunticook Lake, featuring spectacular inland views. Can be combined with other trails in Camden Hills State Park to make a full day of hiking. Camera buffs will like this trail: The views of Megunticook Lake and surrounding countryside give outstanding opportunities for photographs, especially in autumn. The Maiden Cliff Trail begins at the north end of the parking lot and winds through mixed growth. The trail bears northeast and follows the bank of a small brook before crossing a wooden bridge. Shortly past the bridge, the Ridge Trail meets the Maiden Cliff Trail. Keep to the left; the trail becomes quite steep here. The rocks can be slippery when wet, as can the ground itself, since it has a blanket of pine needles; be careful of your footing.

Trail starts out and remains quite steep throughout. Nice variety as you acsend to Maiden Cliff. Sereval areas with excellent views of Penobscot Bay and the surrounding area. Numerous secondary trails provide material for future treks and variable distances.
