Description

This trail system is designed for accessibility and to provide a pleasant way to travel through Blue Hill Village on foot off the busy roads. The trails cut through mixed wood forest occupying a gently sloping landscape, crossing several intermittent streams.

The Murphy Trail is a lovely wooded path with crushed gravel, perfect for a stroll through the woods and suitable for strollers or those with limited mobility. At the end of the Murphy trail - the end of the accessible portion of this trail system - there is a beautiful spot with huge boulders covered in moss, and where there are benches on which to rest.

Read about MTF Accessibility Ambassador Enock Glidden's experience of the Murphy Trail using his wheelchair at MTF Stories.

The Kaiser Trail connects the Murphy Trail with the Parker Point to South Street Trail and is a typical wooded trail.

The Parker Point to South Street Trail includes several bridges, gravel-covered paths, and a long staircase up the slope coming out in between Mainescape and the Blue Hill Coop at its western South Street end.
