Geocache Description:

A scenic walk to the cache on the Salt Bay Heritage Trail in Newcastle.


Great Salt Bay

The Salt Bay Heritage Trail is a beautiful, well-maintained waterfront trail just a short distance from downtown Damariscotta. You'll be afforded excellent views of Salt Bay, where ospreys, cormorants, loons, and bald eagles are often sighted. The trail itself offers quite a wide variety of terrain (marsh to forest) but stays relatively flat.

To reach the trail, take Route 215 north from either business or bypass Route 1. Almost immediately on your left you'll see the Lincoln County News. The kiosk and trailhead are across the street. *NOTE: Although it's closer to the cache, parking along Route 1 is prohibited, the no parking signs are very faded, but a ticket could still result, and it can be dangerous due to the high traffic volume. Plus you'll miss the beauty of the trail. Figure on one hour to an hour thirty minutes round trip from the trailhead.*

If you have time, check out the Glidden Middens nearby--it's a fascinating spot with a lot of history.

Cache is a green ammo can.

Enjoy and au revoir!
