Blue Hill

Blue Hill is just enough off the beaten track that it isn't gaudy or filled just with shops catering to summer folks. My favorite place to shop or even to meet people or ask questions is the Blue Hill Co-op signBlue Hill Food Co-op.

There are also conventional food stores and great restaurants. We recommend Barncastle for a warm pub atmosphere or Arborvine for fine dining.

My favorite thing about Blue Hill, however, is taking a walk up Blue Hill Mountain. From up there you can look out in almost every direction, get a sense of where you are, pick a few blueberries and descend via a different trail than you went up. All trails start on the Mountain Road or you can walk up past the Post Office for a longer hike.
