So very beautiful!

Sachuest has long been a good place to take friends and visitors who just want a pleasant walk with a great view. That requirement comes up often. The extra dimension that the many birds (and snowy owl a few winters ago) plus the deer and nearly hidden coyotes bring is a delightful frosting.

Good location, fun series of hills with good views. Took ~2 hours or less to complete.

I️ grew up right on this hill. I️ bring my dog all the time up there, and she runs freely. Just be careful because there are some horses on the trail some times.

There are two ways to go. You can take the shorter way which is a smaller loop of the hill. Or, you could continue straight down and do parallel to the road and do the bigger loop. Nice views, and I️ love being in the woods.

This is a great hike, Buck hill has several great views, including a nice one of Boston. Recommend ascending Tucker hill first and ending your hike with the red trail back; takes 1-2 hours.

I love this path! It’s my go to when I want to walk outside. There can be a lot of people but the ocean views make it worth it.

Really easy 3-mile loop with several spots for shore access. I enjoy taking a book out on the rocks and enjoying the summer breeze. Great for birding.

Would agree with Joel this trek is not well marked and without a compass and known landmarks I would have felt uncomfortable. I am however new to trekking but I do have good compass and geospatial skills. I was uncomfortable with this hike.

This trail is one of my favorite destination in Rhode Island. The ocean shore view from this trail is absolutely breathtaking esp on the eastern side of ocean view loop trail. The various observation platform is great as well but I like just to get down to the beach and walk along the rocky beach as well.

Been awhile since I hiked this section of the Great Blue Hills. Love Hawk Hill and this entire section. I was looking to get some vertical training in and managed +900' elevation gain between peaks! Found quite a few nice vista points, really like the Hawk Hill vista. I'll be back!

Walk on this everyday...love it!

love it. third time here.

Favorite place to walk!!! The views are amazing!!!! I go a few times a week. Really enjoy it, and relaxing.

4 or 5 great spots with views of Melrose and Malden and even as far as Boston and Revere beach. Definitely a tough loop, very rocky and a lot of up and down. We took our time to a degree and total time was around 4 and a half hours. Managed to spot a deer and two owls also! Great trail overall and not too crowded mid afternoon

Warblers and sea birds so come early and bring your binoculars! Also excellent place for those who like to watch butterflies. Gorgeous sea views top it off.

I love this spot! A beautiful trail that great for anyone. Gorgeous views!

Beautiful views and well kept trails with access to the ocean and benches along the way if to take in the view.

Please wear long pants, hiking boots, long sleeves, and a hat to protect from ticks; dressed appropriately and two buggers still tried to use me as a food source.

Easy walk with beautiful views all along the coast.

Easy walk beautiful views

absoultely have never been but i love the pictures

What a beautiful place this is! Nicely maintained trails with amazing ocean views (there are views all around directly from the trail as well as several observation platforms). SO MANY birds! I'm not a bird watcher, but I saw birds here I've never seen elsewhere in the state. The only drawbacks I can mention are that it was fairly busy, LOTS of poison ivy (so stay on the trail), and others have mentioned ticks (though I didn't encounter any). This was my first walk through a Wildlife Refuge; I think I'll now seek them out!

Nice views. Check for ticks.

There are so many trails, it's hard to keep up which one you are doing. Anyway, just good if you can't get out of the city, nice little wood

Really nice loop early in the day. Half is pretty flat and woodsy, the other half has hills and rocks. The flat part was also nice because there was lighter traffic.

Did this by accident because the rock circuit is poorly marked. Decent run.

Parked on Randolph Ave and headed up Hawk Hill. Continued easterly to Barberry Bush Trail and the Great Cedar Swamp. Bushwacked a bit over to the direct route up Kitchamakin Hill. Turned westerly over Fenno Hill to Chickatawbut peak. Continued by the Education Center then headed down the Skyline Trail back to my car. This is a terrific trek and property. Just do it!

This was my first time at Blue Hills. It’s beautiful! While not all of this trail was marked great the trails were still pretty easy to follow. Only a few times did I lose the trail but easily picked it back up. My dog came with and he absolutely loves exploring! It was a pretty good hike for him too, nothing too difficult for him. He’s a small 25lb Pup that has no problem scaling large rocks. You could start to see some new life in the trees. I can’t wait to come back in a few weeks to see how much it’s grown in!
