Frohock and Derry Mountains, Camden Hills State Park
Matty and I visited Camden Hill State Park today. I dropped Matty off at the base of Mt Battie at the end of Megunticook Street for a planned run/hike of all of the mountains in the park. I then drove over and parked at the Youngtown Road entrance to the park.
The Frohock Trail leaves the multiuse trail approximately 1/2 mile from the parking lot. The trail rises gradually until it intersects with a trail to Garey Mountain. It then dips a bit before climbing Derry Mountain in a series of switchbacks. It then meanders down again before a slight climb up Frohock Mountain.
Both summits are forested, although Penobscot Bay can be seen this time of the year through the bare trees. The hike is a pleasant forested path and I saw only five other people, surprising for a beautiful late fall day.
Below is a map of my hike.
