Took the red trail up to the top from the Blue Hills Trailside Museum parking area, and took the blue and green trails back. Beautiful hike; really enjoyed it with the kids too.

Great hike, but the trail near the route 128 station doesn’t really exist. I hiked the whole thing from the Quincy side and right near 95 the trail completely disappeared. I had to bushwhack to near the train station. I hope I didn’t get poison ivy on me.

short hike but beautiful views from the top of the hill

If you go all the way up the hill, it looks really pretty. I take the dog here and let him run around. He enjoys it. For me, nothing special. The river is nice but beware in the summer SO MANY MOSQUITOS! Bring bug spray. There are kayak rentals in the summer on the weekends.

A good trail if you're looking for an easy short hike to get away from Boston and enjoy a little nature. You can even bring your dog with ya. Only downside is that it is very close to the highway and the noise might put someone off.

Very easy- perfect for a beginner. The view was OK (better view of Boston skyline from the Quarries). I am, however, psyched to put my canoe into the Neponset River from this location!

Very easy trail. Needs to be labeled better. Cool views of the Boston Sky line and big Blue
