The Other Camden Hills
Most people who go to Camden Hills drive right up Mount Battie, which is a nice drive with a great view of the harbor. But the park has so much else to explore. The Ocean View Trail is a particularly excellent choice. It is fairly strenuous, but at the top opens up to amazing views of the surrounding nature in the park. Combine with sunset (though I wouldn't necessarily recommend this as the road to the trail closes shortly after dark) and an incoming storm (also wouldn't recommend this) and you get an unforgettable sunset. But even on a clear summer's afternoon, the view is worth the effort.
