The Beech Hill Preserve is a conservation property in Rockport, Maine. Its 295 acres (119 ha) include the summit of Beech Hill, one of the few bare-topped hills in the area. Its features include forested lower slopes, a commercial blueberry operation, and a 1913 Norwegian sod-roofed hut at the summit of the hill. It has been protected by conservation easements since 1987, and is now owned and managed by the Coastal Mountains Land Trust. The hut, its access road, and the gate on Beech Hill Road were listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Beechnut Hut Historic District in 2003.

  • walking up the hill to the top of Beech Hill was terrific for birdwatching on the way up, then the view of Penobscot Bay from the top of the hill was spectacular. Worth spending a couple hours.  more »
  • Stopped here for a small hike and view from the top of Beech Hill Reserve. Beautiful views of the Ocean and blueberry fields in the area.  more »

  • 10 min easy and gradual uphill walk through some organic low bush blueberry fields to the stone house and stunning ocean views. The gravel trail is perfect for pushing a stroller (as long as the tires are a little larger). Definitely check out this hidden gem!
  • Such a lovely spot. Nice short hike from the trail head. Gorgeous views! Very peaceful
