Geocache Description:

Park at N 43 45.184 W 069 47.317 Closed after sunset

A fort of men and guns long since gone
A faint fog horn is now the song
Down a winding trail along a stone wall
By the given coordinates, Good Luck to you all!

BUG SPRAY IS A MUST, and please BEWARE OF BARBED WIRE near cache.

The History of Fort Baldwin:
(1905 - 1928, 1942 - 1946), Sabino Head
Located here on Sabino Hill were Battery Hardman (1908 - 1917), Battery Hawley (1908 - 1924), Battery Cogan (1908 - 1924), and an unnamed battery of four 155mm guns from WWII (two on Battery Hawley and two next to Battery Hawley). A concrete observation tower was built here in World War II and was used for Battery 102/Steele on Peaks Island (see Portland Defenses). A similar WWII concrete tower is located to the west at Small Point (Bald Head) (private property). The parade ground/administrative area of the post encompassed the site of the 1607 Popham Colony fort.
