Blue Hills Hike - Houghtons Pond to Chickatawbut

Trip dates: Monday, June 17, 2019 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Join the Wednesday Wramblers ( Weekday Wramblers) on a Monday for a 4.8 mile hike covering three hills in the Blue Hills; Tucker Hill, Buck Hill and Chickatawbut. This hike will be mostly on the Skyline Trail with an elevation gain of 1,181 feet. We will meet at the Houghtons Pond parking lot (bathrooms available) and enjoy the ups and downs and views of the Boston skyline that the Blue Hills is known for. This hike is in place of the previously scheduled conditioning hike so it is suitable for a wider range of hiking abilities.

Please bring water, snacks, lunch, layers appropriate to the weather, bug spray and sunscreen. Hiking poles are a good idea on this hilly route. After the hike, some of us may gather at the Dunkin Donuts for coffee, snacks and lively conversation,

Registration is required for this hike.

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.
