Wonderful view from the top of the mountain. Great place to take some pics, picnic, or hike one of the trails.

My husband and I hiked Mount Battie using the carriage trail. The 2.5 mile round trip hike was spectacular. The views of Penobscot Bay and the islands were absolutely breathtaking.

While staying in Camden, we drove up to Mount Battie. It is a 10 minute drive with a small entrance fee. Great view over Camden. I'd do it again...but we had great weather. There were a lot of people there...but not overly crowded.

Had a great hike up the auto road, on a mild winter day. Penobscot Bay from the top is a great view.

Can we hike up the toll road in the winter, or is it off limits to pedestrians? Also, are there sledding hills in the park? We're planning on being in the area around Christmas and would like to enjoy the park if possible, with young children.

Camden Hills is open year round except if roads are bad. As far as I know, hiking in any time is permitted.
