The drive to Fort Foster Park twists past blooming flowers, Victorian homes and tantalizing ocean glimpses. The seaside park is a nice place to walk some trails, have a picnic and play in rocky tide pools. Look out to sea for views of Whaleback Ledge lighthouse (1831).
To get here from US 1, take ME 103 for 5 miles, then cross a small channel to Gerrish Island. Follow Pocahontas Rd through the woods.
