Couple of ways to get up to the top, you can drive (best if you have small kids or much older family), or park at the official entrance or you can park alongside the road and walk up the carriage trail (free versus the others). The carriage trail is a little over a mile round trip and very easy though... 更多
Make sure that when you are in the area be sure to take the drive to the top to see the incredible vista of Camden harbor. There are also good hiking trails from the bottom, but we have not been able to muster the strength to make the climb.
Drive to the top of Mount Battie for the stunning view of Penobscot Bay and many of the coastal islands. Minimal walking required unless you want to hike up the mountain instead of drive. Worth the effort either way.
