Take The Road Less Traveled To One Of Maine’s Most Stunning Views

Maine’s Midcoast offers some of the best adventures in the state. From boating to hiking, there’s enough to keep busy for days. It’s also home to one of the best and most easily accessed outdoor opportunities. The many trails in Camden Hills State Park in Maine will take you to a point overlooking the harbor that’s unrivaled in all the hikes we’ve taken. Not looking to build up a sweat? No problem! Half of our group went straight to the top in a car, seeing the view AND finishing the snacks before we’d had a chance to join them. Most people talk about the Mt. Battie trail to the top, but we recommend you skip it in favor of the Mt. Megunticook route. Here’s why!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
