The Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory is the crown jewel of coastal Maine, offering spectacular 360-degree views of the Penobscot River and Bay, the Maine countryside and the distant western mountains.

Trail
“A nice, moderate difficulty, hike to a lookout near the top of Blue Hill Mountain. A beautiful panoramic view of Penobscot Bay from the Camden Hills on your right to Mount Desert Island on your left. Great for a picnic, or just a pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon. Hike should take 1-2 hours depending on how much of a hurry you are in.”
