Blue Hills Skyline Hike

Thursday, September 26, 2019 12:00 AM

Join me for a moderately-paced morning hike in the Blue Hills. Plan to hike on the Skyline Trail, known to be rugged, strenuous and great training for some of the bigger mountains up north. If we're lucky, we may hit a vantage point to catch a glimpse of our very own Boston skyline. We will be hiking at an average pace of 1.5-2 mph on rocky terrain, up and down the hills, with an elevation gain of 700 feet. Plan to hike 3.5-4 miles. Come and enjoy a breath or two of midweek fresh air with us.

I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.
