This is one of my favorite trail in the Blue Hills. I especially like Eliot Tower the most. A great place to have a picnic in the picnic area.

Great view of the Boston skyline from Eliot Tower. Thought it was going to be a rock scramble at 0.7 miles in, ended up being a nice rock staircase instead.

This trail definitely earned the hard rating, but if you’re up to the challenge it’s a lot of fun! The views from the observation tower are fantastic!

Quick yet challenging hike. Great if you are in the mood to get outdoors and hike but are short on time. The hike starts off very moderate and then gradually gets harder, but nothing to difficult!

Despite it being listed at hard, it is far from challenging for anyone hiking the blue hills. The terrain is mostly level, with a few crossovers onto the skyline trail and the red trail from trailside to great blue.

Great trail, but prepare for all the rocks. It was fairly crowded today (a beautiful Sunday) so not the trail to seek solitude. I also recommend once getting to the tower to deviate about 1/4 a mile down the skyline trail toward the weather observatory there is a beautiful view there.

One of my fave local trails. A little bit of everything. Pay off at the top for a decent view. Up and down spots. A stream crossing. Great tree coverage to protect you from the wind. Can be a bit icy on the rocks.

Short trail, I wouldn't rate as hard. A nice little hike if you only have limited time.
