Scenic Hiking Trails in Mid-Coast Maine

Moosehead Lake Coastal maine

People come to Maine not only for lobster, amazing sailing and ocean views, but
also to hike some of the most beautiful and accessible trails in the country. While there
are many challenging hiking trails in Maine, such as the trails up Mt. Katahdin—near
Moosehead Lake, and Cadillac Mountain–in Acadia National Park, some of the best
hiking trails in the state are right here in Camden and Lincolnville, and you should check
them out while you are here! Camden Hills State Park, located in Camden and
Lincolnville, is one of the most popular hiking destinations. The main entrance to
Camden Hills Park is located just 2 miles from the Inn at Sunrise Point. There are several
different mountains and approximately 30 miles of trails in Camden Hills Park, and all of
the trails lead to stunning views of the coastline and Penobscot Bay
or the beautiful lakes and forests of the State of Maine. Mt. Battie is
the best known mountain and trail and from the top of the mountain
is a truly breathtaking view of the Mid Coast Maine coastline and
the charming town of Camden.
Another great trail is the Maiden’s Cliff trail. This trail is a
bit steeper but no less enjoyable. You will hike through the peaceful
Maine woods on this trail and will be able to see panoramic views of
Lake Megunticook at the top. And Bald Rock Mountain in
Lincolnville is a very nice hike with rewarding views towards Bar
Harbor, Blue Hill, and the islands that populate Penobscot Bay.
If you are looking for a trail that is a bit easier we would
recommend going to Beech Hill in Rockport or Fernald’s Neck in
Lincolnville. These trails are less intense but also beautiful. Each of
the innkeepers at the Inn at Sunrise Point has a favorite, so if you are undecided which trail appeals to
you, ask them. (And don’t forget that we are happy to provide bug spray and sunscreen
