Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Megunticook, Ridge, Nature and Zeke's are in good condition. Slope not so much. Slope has become the "wild thing" trail of Camden Hills State Park. The lower part (which is part of the original CCC ski trail) was very eroded, much more than I have seen in a while. The re-route was better but still contained a lot of eroded sections. There was a walkable path the entire time though. Definitely navigable. Don't try to ski this trail in winter! :) 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Dog friendly, Slope trail might be challenging. Also not a lot of water, bring water for yourself and your doggies. 
Bugs
Bugs: Not bad on the ridge, needed bug spray in the woods (Zeke's / Multi-Use / Slope). Went from no bugs to biting bugs. Mosquito net needed. Not really bad at all, happy the swarms of mosquitoes were not present today.

Comments
Comments: I did the "Megunticook times 2" hike which means I hiked Mt. Megunticook twice, once from the park entrance, the second time from the back side via Slope trail. Nice views of Camden Harbor after about 1.5 miles. Otherwise not much for views. Great workout, fun walk in the woods hike. Camden is beautiful. Can't wait to go back.
