Camden Hills Overnight Hike
Description: Taste the best of our beautiful coastal mountains and experience a night in a backcountry hut just a short hike from Camden! This 2-day adventure begins in Rockport, where you will be introduced to your guide before transport to the Camden Hills State Park trailhead. The trip features a night in a beautiful and rustic cabin in the heart of the Megunticook Range and a day hike to the summit of Bald Rock Mountain, a local favorite with perhaps the finest views of Penobscot Bay and the islands the Camden area has to offer.

UPDATED: Our first Down East Adventure this year is May 17. While we have not yet canceled any trips, we will continue to evaluate trip cancellations as state and CDC guidance is updated over the coming weeks. We will notify all participants immediately if we decide to cancel a trip.
The payment is 50% refundable in the event you have to cancel, as long as the cancellation is made 21 days before the trip. After that time, your payment is non-refundable. Alternately, 100% of your payment will be refunded if a replacement can be found prior to the trip. However, if, due to state and/or federal COVID-19 policies, a lockdown is still in effect, we will refund 100% or offer credit on future trip.
