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.


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