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.
