A hike at the Blue Hills is an amazing experience right here in eastern Massachusetts. Located in Milton, there is plenty of free parking. They also offering skiing, even at night with lights! We took the red dot trail, which has amazing stone features the entire walk up. The trail was a moderate uphill climb, 3/4 of a mile to the top. Once at the top, there are plenty of views from the stone viewing tower. There is also a weather observatory at the top, which offers light refreshments, bathroom facilities, and a guided tour of the weather observatory. There are lots of other trails that also run throughout the area and plenty of space to get away from the city. I would highly recommend this hike and hope you enjoy my photos.
