Prouts Neck is one of the most scenic areas of Scarborough, Maine. This cache is just off the "Cliff Walk" trail. Enjoy!
Prouts Neck is where the family estate of the famous painter, Winslow Homer (1836-1910) is located and where he lived in 1883 to create beautiful sea scenes such as "Sunlight on the Coast". Check out (visit link) for more information about Prouts Neck.
There is an easy hike around the neck which is on public property. However, there is private land right up to the trail, so please be considerate of this private property.
There is no parking at the trail head closest to the cache. If you are driving, the closest public parking is at Ferry Beach, about a 2 mile hike from the cache site. This beach is located at N 43 31.668', W 070 19.192'. You can walk the street back to the main road, then walk to the end of Prouts Neck to the trail head. Or, walk the entire beach and take a board walk to the street from the end of the beach. Then walk straight ahead to the other end of the cliff walk at N 43 43.037', W 070 18.832'. It is about 1 mile from the Ferry Beach parking lot to this trail head, then about another mile around the cliff walk to the cache. So be prepared for about a 4 mile round trip hike. That is why I increased the difficulty level, but it is worth the effort if you enjoy the same ocean scenery that Winslow Homer captured in many of his paintings.
