Cooper Farm at Caterpillar Hill, Sedgwick


  • Preserve Size: 134 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.75 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate
  • Sights: Beautiful views, blueberry fields, forest, accessible trail

The views from Caterpillar Hill are breathtaking. If you take the wheelchair accessible path from the parking lot off Cooper Farm Road up through the field, you’ll have ample opportunity to enjoy them, perhaps at one of the granite block seats set along the quarter-mile, packed-gravel path.

The preserve’s other non-wheelchair accessible trails, through blueberry plains and forest, are also lovely. They are well marked, with maps at every junction, thanks to the good work of Blue Hill Heritage Trust.

Watch for bobolinks, Eastern meadowlark, and woodcocks.

Directions: From Blue Hill, take Route 15, toward Sedgewick. At the intersection with Route 176, turn left, continuing on Route 15. After 4.3 miles, you’ll come to the expansive vista on top of Caterpillar Hill and Cooper Farm. Take a right after the scenic turnout, onto Cooper Farm Road, and there is a large parking area on the right in 100 yards or so.

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