If you like the outdoors or are just looking for the highest point to enjoy a commanding view of picturesque Camden Harbor and Penobscot Bay, then hiking up Mt. Battie is the way to go. This is a relatively easy hike - 1 hour up the mountain, and 1 hour down. For those less adventurous, Mt. Battie Road will take you straight to the top. Once there the lookout tower provides a great backdrop for the even more spectacular views you will find looking across the bay to Cadilac Mountain (Acadia/ Bar Harbor) and Blue Hill. Glenmoor residents can opt for a short ride down the road to the beginning of the hiking trail or simply leave the car behind and enjoy the short walk between the Glenmoor and Camden State Park.
Down the street from the Glenmoor is Ducktrap Kayak. Explore Maine's coast first hand on 2 hour or half-day guided tours. This outfitter carries the finest kayaks, gear, clothing, and books. Tours available daily May - October. No experience necessary.
