    Question Looking for "don't miss" caches.

    I am going to be in Maine from September 9th to the 15th. I hope to attend the Last Cache Bashe of Summer Event on the 9. After that I will have time to cache in the area of the event to Bar Harbor to Portland. In that area are there any "don't miss" caches? You live in a beautiful, historic state and I would like to see it, I'm not interested in numbers or lamp post caches. Any help would be appreciated!

    Well, I would need to ask a couple of questions:

    1. Have you been to Maine before?
    2. Are you more interested in scenery or the hunt for the cache?
    3. Any difficulty/terrain limitations?

    The Fort Williams Cache is Maine's first Geocache so if you want Maine Geocaching history this would be a good one. It is in Cape Elizabeth just a little south of Portland. The park is also home to the Portland Headlight. We love this park it such a beautiful place with plenty of room to spreadout and enjoy it. The cache is hidden away from all the tourist muggles. There is also a very nice multi in the park and a few other caches in the area you could catch.

    I will mark that one as well.

    I have been to Maine and found some caches.
    I am interested in the views or history. I really enjoy hikes.
    I have no limitations.

    I'm interested in micros on lamp post, trains, tanks etc. I am interested in seeing the state not spending my time looking for a micro. I have done enough of that.

    This, along with Wreck Cove, both off the coast of Portland can be done in a morning trip to Long Island. Neither are tide dependent. As a bonus you take a ride down beautiful Casco Bay.

    Well, it doesn't sound like you'll get to my area, but I'll promote a couple of our caches that are worth a visit (And a day trip from Bangor and back):

    North along the Old Canada Road Scenic Byway - caches and great scenery - to

    Over the Horizon (Worth seeing the HUGE, multi-billion dollar Over the Horizon radar antennas that were never used operationally). This is on a route with several other caches that is a GREAT drive along an old railroad roadbed - now a paper company road - along lakes and streams.

    It also brings you to Got Moxie, which is also one of the prettiest waterfalls in New England.

    Then back to the Scenic Byway north, and a loop back to Bangor via Greenville and Moosehead Pond (more caches along the way).
