The views from Caterpillar Hill are breathtaking. You do, though, enjoy them right at the start of the walk (and so, of course, at the end, too). In my opinion, a view packs a greater wallop and feels more like a reward if you arrive at it later on in a hike. Nonetheless, the trails here, through blueberry plains and forest, are really nice, regardless of the fact you get the highlight over rather quickly! The trails 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 park alongside the road.
