Camden Hills State Park (ski shelter trail/slope trail/Mt Megunticook

My son and I hiked at Camden Hills State Park today, taking advantage of the beautiful fall weather.  We started out on the ski shelter trail, which is essentially a dirt road with some elevation gain.  We hiked two miles to the ski shelter where we stopped and enjoyed our lunch.  We then headed up the slope trail to the forested summit of Mt Megunticook.  On the way down we stopped at the Ocean Lookout and enjoyed incredible views of the surrounding area including Camden, Ragged Mountain and Penobscot Bay.    

Here is a map of our hike.

Oddly, it wasn't this crowded when we were up here in March.
