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!

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!

The trail across Hawk Hill is unmarked and easy to lose particularly at the rock scramble. Would stick to well worn/marked trails unless you're feeling adventurous.
