The Awesome Hike In Maine That Will Take You Straight To An Abandoned Castle

Today we take you to popular Cape Elizabeth to do one of the easiest and most beautiful coastal hikes in Southern Maine. While there are many things to see throughout the easy walk, the destination is a often forgotten mansion that dates back to 1858.

Fort Williams Park is free to visit and is open all year from sunrise to sunset. You can bring dogs, but they’re required to be on a leash except in specific “off-leash” sanctioned areas. For directions, click here and enter your own starting point. You can reach the Community Services office for the park by calling: 207-700-2868.

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
