Young Members - Blue Hills, Local Advanced Hike + Whites Winter Warm-up

Trip dates: Saturday, February 15, 2020 12:00 AM

Looking for a winter warm-up to an upcoming White Mountains trip? Or want a decently challenging local hike this winter? Come join Young Members this February for an advanced local hike in the Blue Hills with fantastic views of the Boston skyline and surrounding areas!! Hike will be 6.5 to 8.5 miles with 1500 to 2000 ft of elevation gain over roughly 6 hours. As this is a winter hike in February, expect to be prepared for cold weather (lots of layers). Because we will be completing several steep ascents on rocky outcrops under snowy and icy trail conditions, microspikes will be required. This is not a trip for beginners.
