choice for all types of outdoor enthusiasts. It is a moderate, five-mile trail
that follows the base of Megunticook, where you can see everything from forest
to bogs, and an abundance of wildlife. As a multi-use trail, it is well
graveled and popular with hikers, horseback riders, ski mobiles, and
bicycles. It is open all year and is a popular cross-country trail in the
winter. You can also access several trails in the northern section of Camden
Hills State Park, including local favorite Bald Rock with its gorgeous views.

bald eagles and loons that live on the lake. There's a lot to see on the 3.6
miles of trails, so be sure to plan ahead so you can take your time taking it
all in. Near balance rock, there is even a place you can get your feet wet

go from the nearby Iselboro ferry terminal. You can enjoy kayaking, boating, swimming,
and fishing. There's no shortage of fun and exploration along the coast, and
the bay is protected from big waves by the islands. You can also take a short
ride out to the nearby island of Isleboro.
