Snowshoeing Mid-Coast Maine: Camden Hills State Park

++ Get out (but, like, not too far). We all love and appreciate the positive effects of the Maine outdoors. Hopefully we’ll be back to all kinds of adventuring soon. But for now, press pause. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry has some great advice: stay close to home, steer clear of busy locations, keep your distance (and stick to walking/hiking with folks from your household). ++

This week we will meet at Bald Rock in Camden Maine for a moderate 3.4 mile hike. This is a good introduction to snowshoeing on steeper inclines. The trail rises slowly for the first mile as we follow an old carriage road. From there it is .5 to the summit. There are several short steep sections but nothing long and sustained. At the summit you will be greeted with fantastic views of Penobscot Bay. Enjoy a hot beverage, some snacks, and a cup of soup while gazing upon the winter wonderland. There is a three-sided shelter just below the summit where lunch may be provided.

This is one of my favorite “bang for your buck” hikes. Moderate effort…amazing views!
This is week two of a four part snowshoeing series. Check out the link for more information.
