Haystack Mountain, Liberty


  • Preserve Size: N/A
  • Trail Mileage: 1.1 mile loop
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate
  • Sights: woods, views through trees

This little mountain can be a gorgeous hike — when the owner of the summit with expansive views — allows walkers onto his blueberry barrens. Otherwise, it’s a pleasant enough little loop in the woods. I am not sure if the owner will reopen the summit at some point.

Directions: From Rte 3 between South China and Belfast, take Rt. 220 south for .8 miles. Turn left at the sign for the Vena M. Roberts Memorial Ball Field. Park in the parking lot behind Walker Health Center in Liberty. The trailhead is at the far corner, past the ball field.


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