In this segment of On Location, Coyote, Mark and Mario head out on an epic adventure to explore an abandoned fortress!
Engulfed in plants on a small island in the Portland Harbor lies the lost battle station known as Fort Gorges. Built in 1858 this fort has never seen military conflict but has been used in recent centuries to store everything from canon’s to submarines.
Today, if you are brave enough, you can rent a kayak and paddle out to the forts “minecraft like” castle walls and explore its historic grounds.
So on their last day in Maine the Brave Wilderness crew decided to do exactly that…because who wouldn’t want to explore a HUGE fortress left abandoned for over a century?!
Get ready to storm the fort!
