Description

Midcoast Maine: Cape Small through Muscongus Bay & Inland

This lovely stretch of Maine doesn't contain much climbable rock, but it is relatively populated. Route 1 leaves i-295 in Topsham and will provide a scenic drive to Penobscot Bay. Many small peninsulas carve up the coast with many lovely small towns. The circuitous nature of the driving lends itself to the classic Maine phrase, "You can't get there from here," A destination may be only a mile across a bay, but require an hour's drive out of the way to get to where you were trying to go.

The occasional short wall is around, and the occasional boulder, but the rock on the whole is very chossy, and best bypassed.

Bowdoin College is also in this region, in the town of Brunswick, and the coastal ship building town of Bath has a rich and storied history worth exploring. The most modern vessels in America's Navy are being built there, continuing a ship building tradition that stretches back hundreds of years. Popham beach is a perennial favorite and the coastal villages of Wiscasset, Damariscotta, and Thomaston are all worth exploring on days off from climbing.

Ultimately this will be an area that many pass through on their way to Camden, but it provides a lovely Maine experience.

Getting There
