Join us for this 4 week series of hikes selected from "AMC's Best Day Hikes Near Boston." Each week will focus on an area South of Boston to explore.
Our first hike kicks off in the Chickatawbut area of the Blue Hills. We will hike at a moderate pace among the rolling hills and simply enjoy being in nature with like-minded outdoor enthusiasts. There may be climbs up some steep, rocky hills, at a slow side of moderate pace, to catch some scenic views. The spring is a lovely time of year to hike and if we're lucky we'll get to see the Great Cedar Swamp full of birds and green mossy wetlands. Maybe the Mountain Laurels will be in bloom.
Plan to start at 9:30am and hike approximately 5 miles within 2.5-3 hours. This is a great way to get outside locally, reinforce your hiking skills, and meet new people.
Online registration is required and limited to 10 participants, including leader(s).
Bring a back pack with water, rain jacket, snacks, mask, hand sanitizer, and poles if you use them. After you register, the hike leader will send you detailed information on meeting location and planned trails.
