Young Members Blue Hills Hike - Skyline Trail

Trip dates: Sunday, January 6, 2019 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Join AMC Young Members in ringing in the new year 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. The total distance of the hike is about 6 miles. We will start hiking at 10 AM.

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

Carpool:
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. Carpooling information will be available when you are approved for the trip.
