As part of our 50k training, my partner and I had a 14-mile long run to complete and decided to visit Camden Hills State Park to get in a combination of trail running and hiking. We’d been stuck in Portland for the previous two months due to Covid-19, and this was our first day-trip to get away and forgot things for a few hours.
We started at the parking lot off Route 1 and ran the Ski Shelter Trail to Bald Rock Trail. We hiked a loop of Bald Rock Trail to the summit and down Frohock Mountain Trail back to Ski Shelter Trail. From there we ran Cameron Mountain Trail to the peak and back. We returned down Ski Shelter Trail toward the parking lot but still had some miles to get, so we hiked partway up Megunticook Trail before turning around and running back to our car.
