Family Hike to Great Blue Hill (Blue Hills Reservation), Milton, MA (BHP: Level 2)

Trip dates: Sunday, April 7, 2019 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM

Stretching from Dedham to Quincy, Milton and Randolph, the Blue Hills Reservation encompasses >7000 acres and has >125 miles of trails, and it is only ~35 miles from Boston! We will hike a loop of about 3 miles, mostly along the Skyline trail to the top of Great Blue Hill. Great views, snacks at the Eliot Tower and an optional visit to the weather observatory. Don't let its proximity to the city or it max elevation of 635 feet fool you, the rocky and rolling terrain can be a real workout.
