Quarry Hill Preserve, Waldoboro


  • Preserve Size: 321 acres
  • Trail Mileage: more than 1.3 miles (if you include snowmobile trails)
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: quarry, blueberry barrens

I don’t have much information about this town-owned preserve, and I am not sure what the plans are for developing walking trails here. As of spring of 2017, there is a glorious quarry pond that looks like it might be a destination for swimmers, cliff jumpers, and rope swingers in the summer, and an old road on which you can walk through some blueberry barrens. Past the barrens, you pick up a snowmobile trail. There’s a little path around the quarry as well.

Directions: From Route 1, turn onto Depot Street and go about .7 mile. You’ll see a sign for Quarry Hill on the right. You can drive up the dirt road and park near the quarry and pond.

  1. I unfortunately don’t have firm answers to your questions! But I’m pretty sure you can swim. I just haven’t visited during the summer. It looked very tempting when I was there in the spring, though.

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