An easy family hike through Blue Job Mt State Forest. A variety of terrain - granite, blueberry fields, pine and hardwood forestlands with good examples of plant succession. Carry in - carry out (no trash facilities) please do not leave bagged dog doo or trash behind! Use increases on weekends.

For a short hike it's perfect - not too long and just enough interesting incline changes. The view could be a bit obstructed, but there's also a certain charm in spying glimpses of the surrounding area through the trees. In any case, the fire tower gives more than enough viewing opportunities.

Good and easy little hike. Taking the loop trail to the other summit beyond the fire tire makes for a longer and better hike. The trail from the tower is marked by cairns and the loop coming back isn't well marked at all.

Can be kind of confusing, so be careful, but it's worth the extra little distance.

Blue Job is an easy trail that offers spectacular views from the fire tower on the summit. Mts. Monadnock, Washington, and many others are visible. Take a side trail to the bare summit to the north for even more excellent views.

Nice short hike. Black flies were awful but that's more or less expected this time of year. The dog loved it!
