Blue Hills is a mixed bag. The area is sprawling, gorgeous, and provides a lot of options. However, I think the more difficult trails are under-ranked – that is, 'moderate' should be 'difficult'. But more importantly, their overall mapping and wayfinding is subpar. Between the poor markings and the pleasant but sometimes clueless onsite employees, hikers really need to do thorough homework beforehand. Once you've rolling though, it's great.

Great hike for us and the dog! Challenging for a moderate trail given certain rocky inclines. The mosquitos were brutal though. And the best views are at the start of the hike.
