Heart of Blue Hill Trails, Blue Hill


  • Preserve Size: 11 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 0.9 miles in system
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: streams, water fountain

These are lovely, short, easy-to-walk, gravel-covered paths. Sections are even wheelchair accessible (the leg closest to Route 15, Main Street), but not the whole system. There is a long series of wooden steps up the hill to South Street (Route 172). The path emerges next to the Blue Hill Co-op.

From South Street to Main Street, it’s roughly 0.7 miles. From Parker Pond Road to South Street, it’s approximately 0.5 miles.

There is also an interesting old town water fountain, or trough, in the parking area off Parker Point Road.

Directions: Parking for the trail system is on Parker Point Road near the old town fountain, 0.3 mile from Main Street.
