Fort Edgecomb

Fort Edgecomb
Fort Edgecomb

Located just across the bridge from Wiscasset to Edgecomb, Fort Edgecomb was built to protect and defend shipping traffic on the Sheepscot River into Wiscasset Harbor.

Situated right on the river are rolling hills and short trails with scenic views. Plan to bring a picnic lunch to take advantage of summer breezes!

How to get here:

From the inn go north on Rt 1 to Wiscasset. Cross the bridge and turn right on Eddy Rd. Turn right again on Old Fort Rd. Just before you get to the fort, the road becomes very narrow.

Make a day of it and head into Boothbay Harbor. Leaving the fort, turn right on Eddy Rd, continue to Rt 27, go right. Stay on Rt 27 into Boothbay. While in Boothbay, head to Southport Island to check out some lighthouses. Hendricks Head Lighthouse
