YM Blue Hills Hike - Skyline Trail

Trip dates: Sunday, December 9, 2018 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Join us for a beautiful hike at the Blue Hills Reservation. We'll be hiking part of the popular skyline trail. Be prepared for a 3-4 hour hike at a moderate pace through some rugged, hilly terrain. Weather may be chilly so bring lots of warm layers.

Dogs are welcome on this hike, but do let us know if you plan to bring yours.

The total distance of the hike is about 5 miles. We will start hiking at 10 AM, detailed route and meetup location will be shown here once you are approved for the trip.

Carpool:
Once you are approved, you can find the list of other approved participants and their carpool information. Please reach out to the individuals who might be offering a ride. We encourage carpooling because it is fun and it helps the environment. We suggest that carpoolers meet at a central location (i.e. a train station) to minimize driving if many people have to be picked up.
