Directions to Trailhead

Begin by finding the intersection of Rte 142 and 156 in Weld. From this intersection, you will turn onto Center Hill Road. Center Hill Road takes you most of the way around Mount Blue State Park. On your right you will see a big sign that says "Center Hill" (you really can't miss it!). Turn here. You'll drive up a road, most of the way up the hill to a parking area.

At the parking area you can hike in two directions, both of which are well marked. The trail is a loop, so whichever way you start, you'll come out at the other trail head.

Hike Report

Every week, the teen camp at Camp Good News in East Livermore, Maine takes its campers to Webb Lake, and then to hike Center Hill. As the camp pastor, this is my favorite day of the week!

It's was so much fun to "show off" the mountains around Weld to some kids who have never really seen mountains before. They were awestruck by the views, even before we got to Center Hill!

From Center Hill you get wonderful views of Tumbledown Mountain, the Jacksons (Big and Little) and Blueberry Mountain.

This really makes a nice little activity to do along with a visit to Webb Lake, and is definitely worth the short amount of time it takes to climb.

Difficulty

Easy! You'll love the views you get for virtually no effort at all! Not at all steep, this is a very relaxing hike through the woods.

Statistics

This is a very short hike. With a group of teens from a summer camp, we do this probably in about a half an hour, including the time we spend stopped to enjoy the views.

About the author
Most of my hiking happens in the North East region of the United States. I don't hike as much as I used to, now that we have a baby in the house, but I do love to get out and explore now and then! If I've provided incorrect info in any of my reports, please drop me a comment so I can fix it! (more...)
