The view from atop Mt Battie is almost familiar as it has been featured in many movies, such as BeetleJuice and Casper the Friendly Ghost. It has been featured for its small town New England look, what with the church steeple, and the windjammers in the harbor. Camden Hills is a great place to hike. There are many miles of trails that feature great views of Penobscot Bay, west to rolling hills and low peaks, and also the town of Camden. I like to think of it as a small less busy version of Acadia.
