A short drive from Lincolnville or Camden is the Camden Hills State Park.

For a small fee and a short drive you will be at the peak of this 5,710 acre public area and on a clear day you will literally see for miles.

The Town of Camden with boats bobbing on clear water to your right and the many islands of Penobscot Bay.

Although we enjoyed the views hiking/cycling the "multi-use" trails apparently is also popular. Lucky Camden residents to have this amenity on their doorstep.

We stopped at Camden Hill State Park to break up the drive, but had an excellent hike. After driving up Mt. Battie and enjoying the view, we walked to the Ocean Lookout and to Adam's Lookout. It's a good trail to an impressive viewpoint.

I love heights, especially when I look back to see where I have been. The view from Mt. Battie in Camden Hills State Park is spectacular. I remember the scene from the movie Peyton Place which was shot from this very spot. We visited in mid-October and the entire panorama was alive with fall colors. Definitely recommend this as a spot to visit and ponder.

We were fortunate to visit here last week during the peak of Fall coloring. The gorgeous drive up Mount Battie and the 360 degree view from the top will remain one of our greatest memories.

if in Camden and wanting to get away from the ocean (and the lobsters), take a hike in beautiful Camden Hills State Park (don't just drive up to the lookout in your car, but walk or hike one of the many trails)
