A quick hike up Mount Megunticook offers incredible views of the surrounding water with fewer people than you will see on top of Mount Battie!

After driving in to Camden Hills State Park, there is a fork where you can go straight (to the campgrounds) or left (to head up Mount Battie). Take a left and then park in the parking lot immediately on your right. That is the trailhead to Mount Megunticook!

The trail itself winds through the trees, slowly gaining elevation. There is a point where the trail forks into two. Both options will get you to the summit in the same relative distance. I recommend picking one to go up and one to go down just for a little variety. 

The best views are about 0.3miles before you reach the summit. Sweeping views of Camden, the surrounding water and Mount Battie. It is a wonderful way to experience the area. The park is also very well maintained during winter, so it would be a pleasant snowshoe as well!

When you are finished, head into town for some food. Long Grain is a renowned restaurant in Maine. We also personally love the bar at 16 Bay View for its quirky atmosphere. Or make the short drive to Cellardoor Winery in Lincolnville. The grounds and tasting room are absolutely stunning - and the first glass of wine is free!
