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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

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.
