Nice place, river views are nice more of a walk than a hike

Gorgeous, well marked

Recently got interested in foraging. Decent number of mushrooms and other funghi around. Just need to climb learning curve so I don't poison myself. Cheers!

We come here weekly and we love it! Trails are marked and well maintained! You hardly see anyone on the trails, you may pass 2/3 other hikers/bikers. After reading other reviews if you’re seriously complaining about bugs in the woods and off leash dogs in a nearly deserted forsest maybe this isn’t the place for you.

Rattlesnake hill has a great summit with a wide open view of Boston and the Golf Course. Wampatuck is a bit higher than Rattlesnake. Best to park by St Moritz pond and take the skyline to wampatuck, then turn around and take the green trail back to the parking lot.

Perfect for what we needed - an easy hike with pretty foliage.

This is an awesome trail that will push you to your limits. There is multiple routes to explore that accommodate your level. Make sure to bring plenty of water.

Easy trail! love the company!!

Grew up hiking these trails with my family!!!

I love the Blue Hills. As a Boston resident, the Skyline trail at BH provides a nice challenging alternative to driving the distance to NH for more challenging hikes. I disagree that this is a moderate hike because the terrain is very rocky, one needs to be prepared to climb and descend jagged stairs at regular intervals on this trail. I would recommend bringing a Gatorade (or similar drink) because depending on where you end your hike, you are walking 9 to 11miles. I also recommend an early start (especially during the warmer months of the year).

I completed this hike by myself in 5 hours (from Quincy to Trailside Museum off 138) and in 6 hours when accompanied by a friend who is fit but is not a hiker.

Great trails and epic pump Track.

I would rate the level of difficulty as easy to moderate, you can walk it without encountering too many strenuous inclines. If you enter to the right, and stay on path you will be rewarded by a beautiful serene boardwalk path where deer are often seen drinking from the swamp. At the entrance to the forest there is accessible lake access for fishing and a lovely rushing dam. After the thaw or any significant rain fall you will need to step across some standing water. There is an interesting old gravestone along the way also.

4.5 stars, just because I don’t know what a 5 would be. Lots of subsidiaries. As challenging as you’d like to make it.

Not too challenging, but uphill for the first half mile or so. Trails are very well marked. Maps along the way. Some traffic.

I've been hiking here for probably 15-20 years and have covered most of the trails. I like hiking here BUT there are a few things to take note of. First is that there are a LOT of off leash dogs. My dog doesn't like other dogs, so I can't bring him here because big dogs bounding up to him with no leash scare him. I also run into bikers on the trails that prohibit them pretty often. I also agree with some of the other reviews that it tends to be pretty buggy.

Overall, I agree with most reviews on here, it just depends what things bug you and what things don't. Its pretty well populated so you feel secure but if you're someone who likes secluded hiking, you won't get that until you get back towards route 1 quite a bit. The trails are generally well marked BUT there are a lot of them and they criss cross and overlap a lot so you'll definitely need a map with a marked planned route or a GPS/app to help you out

The trail was kinda tough to follow, we ended up taking the wrong trail at the weather observatory. Make sure you bring a map with you!

Nice little trail. Tiny parking lot can fit about 3 cars but has parking on other side of park. Has some cool walkways with bridges and stone pathways. Very quiet and peaceful. Very buggy is the only downside...

Not technical mostly flats some ups and some downs. Only come here if your looking for an easy relaxing ride. Not fun for what I was looking for

The trails are ok, but very poorly marked, particularly the one with the red blaze. Decent option if you are looking for something close to the city.

Beautiful with lots of trails to choose from. Nice and quiet. Walk. Lots of rocks and roots on trails so watch for trip hazards.

Great leisurely hike.

great trail that connects to the green dot trail if you want an easier hike.

Tooooo buggy. Started off with all natural bug repellent, did not work. Switched to deep woods Off, did not work. Just ended up turning around. Not to mention the continued Route 1 traffic noise.

Not ideal but do-able for a stroller, very nice loop, will be much better between September-November when the cranberry bogs are in full. Very nice all around tho and very easy to walk around

Well marked trail, was a little over grown today. Short easy route, with several small bridges. Leads to Two Ponds trail. Early evening, a little buggy.

Sweet little trail. Great for kids and out of town guests to show them the bog. I don’t bring my stroller on this one.

My happy place a lot of the time! Great trails and lots of friendly people.

Used to go as a kid and it’s so much fun to walk on hills, see beautiful wildlife, great scenery!

Starting from my home at the Dover side of Pine Street you've got 10 min to bike to the top of Snow Hill then another 10 min to get to the top of Cedar Hill (Rocky Woods) then another 10 min to get to the top of Noanet Peak. I got the first two, have to rethink my way up Noanet. I will add Pegan Hill next and give myself another 10 min to do Quatre Femmes! I'd add Miller Hill but somebody built a mansion up there.

Great first time here. Did the green trail. Didn't get lost. Will come back and try the red trail next. Trail markings were good.
