Directions to Fort Baldwin Trail

If you're checking Google Maps for directions, it'll tell you that Fort Baldwin Memorial Park is off Sea Street. Whatever this might be, it's NOT Fort Baldwin, so don't waste your time going down Sea Street. If you're at Fort Popham, just head back up 209 maybe a quarter of a mile, and you'll see a right-hand turn you can take that's named Fort Baldwin Road. This is an incredibly narrow road (if you meet someone, one of you will probably have to back up!), but the fort's parking lot is on the right just a short ways up. You can't miss it - if you do, you'll be on someone's private driveway! Park on the right, then hike up the hill to the left.

Hike Report

Sabino Hill is the home of Fort Baldwin. If you're looking to hike up to the forts, it's a really short hike over a dirt road.

There are three installations (batteries) as you travel up the hill. The first one is VERY reminiscent of one of the batteries at Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth. In fact, we really wonder if they used exactly the same plans.

Almost immediately after the third battery there is a tower - I'm not sure what the tower was used for; I think someone once told me it was a storage facility. You can go in the tower and climb up at least part way. The echo in the tower is extraordinary, and little Toby seemed to find it a bit nerve-wracking, so we didn't stay there long.


Easy! Took little Toby in a backpack, and it was just a gradual incline up a dirt road.


This is a really short hike - depending on how much time you spend exploring the batteries and the tower, this probably won't take you more than a half an hour.

About the author
Most of my hiking happens in the North East region of the United States. I don't hike as much as I used to, now that we have a baby in the house, but I do love to get out and explore now and then! If I've provided incorrect info in any of my reports, please drop me a comment so I can fix it! (more...)
