This fantastic hike offers spectacular views of Camden Harbor and Penobscot Bay, a stone tower, and multiple interpretive signs pointing out the area’s historical significance. Mount Battie offers one of the most stunning views of the craggy Maine coastline. It’s no wonder that the 0.5-mile trail to the summit has long been a favorite with families, particularly considering the castle-like stone tower that beckons at the top and the views of Camden and Penobscot Bay along the way.
