DescriptionThis very visible crag, also known as the Upper Megunticook Cliffs, has seen less activity than other Camden areas, probably because of its one-mile, uphill approach. It is my favorite area in camden, and is full of steep cracks, from fists to fingers. Peregrines are often present year-round in the area above the largest talus slope. According to the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, they are not currently nesting, but should the situation change, please respect any posted closures.
Getting ThereHike in via the Tablelands Trail, which starts from the Mt. Battie Auto Road (park entrance fee required). The trail will take you to a point below the right end of the cliff; find the intersection of the Jack Williams Trail, follow it left a few hundred yards, and then head up to the crag.
You can also reach the Tablelands Trail by continuing uphill on the Carriage Road Trail past the Cataracts, the Ramparts, and the Hot Spot; the trail junction is one mile from the road. Alternatively, go straight up the Megunticook Trail from the Camden Hills State Park entrance on Route 1, emerging at Ocean Lookout at the top of the cliff.
