Early August hike right after having lunch in Blue Hill. Five minute drive from Blue Hill. Gorgeous views of Blue Hill and the water from the top and if you hike during blueberry/blackberry season you get to gorge yourself on wild berries along the way!...More

A nice hike with great views. Quiet area with not a lot of people. You have the scenery to yourself. Worth seeing

There are several paths up and around this mystical mountain, some harder than others. The Blue Hill Heritage Trust does an amazing job maintaining them. Try as many as you can, at different times, different seasons, I always discover new things.

This is a regular hike for us and the views never cease to amaze us. Last week with the lupines in full bloom in the field approaching the hill. This is a special place any time you decide to go.

About a mile each way, so two miles round trip. Assuming you have a backpack for carrying the one year old, seems he should come along, too - and mom! That said - even though the trail is short, it is a climb - so only if... More
