Let’s grab a picnic lunch at Market Basket, a gourmet market and bakery with something for everyone. Next stop: the summit of Mt. Battie! We’ll enjoy a relaxed mountaintop lunch while admiring the scenery that surrounds us in the Camden Hills. After lunch, let’s head to the Rockland Breakwater, an impressive man-made, mile-long granite breakwater that leads us to our third and final lighthouse of the day! Three lighthouses and one seaside mountain summit in one day- what more could you ask for?! Lunch (sandwich, chips, bottle of water, and a cookie) and park admission are included in the cost of the trip. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes.
