Fort Foster, Kittery


  • Preserve Size: 88 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~2.5 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: fort remains (bunkers), rocky beaches

Fort Foster is a stunning town-owned park, with lots to offer walkers or people just looking for an ocean view. It has history, a playground, a pier, pretty picnic table sites, rocky beaches, beautiful views of Portsmouth Harbor, and great trails (some of them also suitable for wheelchairs). I imagine it is super popular in the summer, so perhaps try to visit during the off season, when you must park outside of the entrance gate.

Directions: The fort entrance is off Pocahontas Road.

Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
