It is an exceptionally beautiful Indian summer weekend here in Maine, with temperatures in the summer temperature ranges (upper 80s). We got a small hiking group together and explored the Camden Hills State park. We started from Maiden Cliff Parking lot, and hiked up to the Maiden Cliff outlook, then veered over to the Ridge trail, which was quite steep in some parts. After another break in the lunch time heat on one of the outlooks, we decided to take the shady Jack Williams trail over to the connection to Ocean View lookout, which has spectacular views over the Penobscot Bay and the Camden Harbor. That was about 4h after we started and after another hour we arrived at the beginning of the Mt Battie toll road, ready for cold water and beer and a huge sandwich and ice cream.
