The Buck Hill property has a variety of habitat types, including several periodically mowed fields, streams and 53 diverse forested acres. The American chestnut trees near the main trailhead were planted in spring of 2005 and are managed by the American Chestnut Foundation.

Most trails are mowed or maintained as wide, easy walking paths with gentle terrain, although some areas with narrower trails and steeper pitches exist. Trails are limited to non-motorized traffic only, except for management purposes.

Other Information

The 64-acre Buck Hill Conservation Area is owned and managed by the Town of Veazie, with volunteer assistance from Veazie Land Association. Orono Land Trust/Veazie Land Association hold 2 trail improvement days per year, one in Spring (near Earth Day) and one in Fall (usually October). Trail users are encouraged to contact the manager for potential volunteer trail improvement work.
