So You Say You Want To Go Hiking?…(and save money, too!)

June 7, 2016 by captain swift inn

Camden Hills State Park


We have hiking! There are many really great places around Camden for hikers of all levels, from beginners to advanced. There are about 30 miles of scenic trails throughout the park, including the Nature Trail, Maiden’s Cliff and the Tablelands Trail just to name a few. Maiden’s Cliff, a moderate trail and one of the most popular in the park, rewards the hiker with gorgeous views of Megunticook Lake and the surrounding forests.


The Nature Trail is the trail of choice to get to the trail head for the Tablelands Trail. This beautiful trail descends from the summit of Mount Battie, winds its way northward through woodlands, rises to a series of plateaus, and then climbs steadily to the Ocean Lookout at 1300′.

So you say you want to hike some more? Visit these trails from Coastal Mountain Landtrust, Beech Hill Preserve, Fernald’s Neck and Bald Mountain.

As the only bald hilltop in the area, Beech Hill is an extraordinary hiking, picnicking and birding destination that offers panoramic views of Penobscot Bay, the Camden hills and the St. George peninsula.

Beech Hill

Dominated by thick stands of pine and hardwoods, Fernald’s Neck Preserve covers most of a large peninsula that juts in to the north end of Megunticook Lake.

At 1,280 feet, Bald Mountain is the fifth highest peak on the eastern seaboard. This Preserve offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy a true sense of quiet solitude.
