IF YOU GO

WHAT: Beech Hill Preserve, Coastal Mountains Land Trust’s
cornerstone preserve and an unusual place in the midcoast region.

WHEN: The preserve is open year-round; the hut is open two
days a week from May through October.

WHERE: In Rockport off Beech Hill Road, between routes 1 and
17.

HIKING IT: It’s just three-quarters of a mile on the old
farm road from the parking area to the stone hut.

WHAT ELSE: Walkers must stay on the path and dogs must be on
leashes. This is important to allow the land trust to continue the organic
farming effort on the blueberry fields.
