    Hiking in Blue Hills



    Department of Conservation & Recreation

    Hiking in Blue Hills

    Blue Hills Reservation has hiking trails for every experience level.


    Blue Hills Reservation has a lot to offer both lifelong hikers and those who want to stroll through stunning scenery. There are 125 miles of trails that will take you over hills, through marshes, across meadows, and more.

    Make sure you bring a trail map. You can buy one at Reservation Headquarters or at the Blue Hills Trailside Museum. You can use the map along with the small white markers posted at some trail intersections to figure out exactly where you are on the trail: the markers have 4-digit numbers that correspond to locations on the map.

    Also, check the weather before you hike so that you know what clothes to wear, and always bring plenty of water.

    What to know

    There are lots of ways to explore Blue Hills Reservation, but here are a few hikes we recommend:

    Easy hikes

    These are great for families with young children.

    Wolcott & Border Path

    Distance: 2.5 miles Time: 1–1.75 hours

    Starting point: Reservation Headquarters, 695 Hillside St., Milton. Parking available across the street.

    A relatively level hike through majestic stands of pines and hemlocks. Follow the woodland lane that starts at Reservation Headquarters (Wolcott Path, intersection #1186 on your map) about ½ miles to the Five Corners intersection (5 trails converge at intersection #1141). Angle right on the green dot trail. Upon reaching Border Path (intersection #1135), turn right and continue to intersection #1175. Turn right and follow the path past intersection #1178, and then turn left back onto Wolcott Path.

    Houghton’s Pond Loop

    Distance: .75 miles Time: 30 minutes

    Starting point: Houghton’s Pond Recreation Area, 840 Hillside St., Milton

    This short hike around Houghton’s Pond is a wonderful way to take in the beauty of fall foliage in Massachusetts. Follow the yellow dot trail marks around the pond to walk the full loop.

    Dark Hollow Loop

    Distance: 2 milesTime: 1.5 hoursStarting point: Houghton’s Pond Recreation Area, 840 Hillside St., Milton

    This mostly-level woodland loop trail is marked with green dots and takes you around the base of Tucker Hill. To upgrade this hike to a moderate climb, follow the green dots to the Skyline Trail, which is blazed in blue.

    Wolcott Path Loop

    Distance: 2 milesTime: 1–2 hoursStarting point: Trailside Museum, 1904 Canton Ave., Milton

    Follow the green dots at the bulletin board in the Trailside Museum's north parking lot to enjoy a level trail through some of Blue Hills Reservation’s hardwood forests.

    Braintree Pass Path

    Distance: 3 milesTime: 2–2.5 hoursStarting point: Intersection of Route 28 and Chickatawbut Road, Quincy

    This hike is one of the gems of the reservation. The trail passes by stands of majestic hemlocks, mountain laurel-covered slopes, and an Atlantic cedar swamp. An old cellar hole marks the Glover Homestead, where farmers settled hundreds of years ago.

    Park in the small pull-off (intersection #3024) and walk past the bulletin board down Braintree Pass Path. Pass intersection #3072, and then bear left at intersection #3090. Continue downhill to intersection #3121. Go left again and follow the path skirting the Great Cedar Swamp to your right. To return, take a left onto Bouncing Brook path (intersection #3130) and follow the red path back to Braintree pass.

    Moderate hikes

    If you're looking for a more moderate hike, we recommend these trails.

    Hancock Hill

    Distance: .5 milesTime: 30 minutesStarting point: Reservation Headquarters, 695 Hillside St., Milton. Parking available across the street.

    Hancock Hill is perfect for a quick but rigorous hike that rewards you with a great view from the summit. Follow the North Skyline Trail to intersection #1162. Turn left here, and then left again at intersection #1160, or Wolcott Path, which will bring you back.

    Great Blue Hill

    Distance: 1 mileTime:1–1.5 hoursStarting point: Trailside Museum, 1904 Canton Ave., Milton

    Great Blue Hill may be the largest hill in the Blue Hills chain, but the trail itself is just a moderate climb. Follow the red dot trail to head straight up from the South lot parking area, or walk the paved access road from the North lot parking area.

    Ponkapoag Pond

    Distance: 3.75 milesTime: 2.5–3 hoursStarting point: Interstate 93 exit 3 pull-off on Blue Hill River Road

    For a relaxed and more isolated hike, follow the green dot trail around the largest and most remote body of water in Blue Hills Reservation. Our rangers highly recommend the Ponkapoag boardwalk across the bog, which will take you  through some of the Reservation’s marshlands. The bog is across from the YMCA camp site at intersection #5176.

    Q: How hard is it to hike into the Grand Canyon?

    A: The answer is up to you. Depending on how prepared you are, your trip can be a vacation or a challenge, a revelation or an ordeal. The majority of Grand Canyon hikers are here for the first time, and although many are avid hikers, they find that hiking the Grand Canyon is very different from most other hiking experiences. They tend to react to the experience in one of two ways, either they can't wait to get back, or they swear they will never do it again.

    Mental attitude and adequate water and food consumption are absolutely essential to the success of any hike into the Grand Canyon, particularly in summer. The day hiker and the overnight backpacker must be equally prepared for the lack of water, extreme heat and cold, and isolation characteristic of the Grand Canyon. Hiking in the Grand Canyon is so demanding that even people in excellent condition often emerge sore and fatigued. Yet small children, senior citizens, and people with physical disabilities have successfully hiked the canyon.

    Backcountry rangers recommend that hikers make their first trip into the inner canyon on one of the park's Corridor trails: Bright Angel Trail, South Kaibab Trail, or North Kaibab Trail. This area includes three campgrounds: Indian Garden, Bright Angel, and Cottonwood each having ranger stations, water, and emergency phones.

    Sky's the Limit Hiking Challenge 2022

    Are you ready for an outdoor adventure exploring CT State Parks and Forests? Curious to discover some best kept secrets and build your awareness of CT’s history, nature, or landscapes?  Join Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s (DEEP) State Parks and Public Outreach Division as they ring in spring on Sunday, March 20, 2022 with the 2022 Sky’s The Limit Hiking Challenge (“STL”).  Take the challenge and get outside for some fresh air to experience this year’s STL theme, “Best Kept Secrets”. These 20 Best Kept Secrets can be the park or forest itself, or a component within such. Discover sunken boats, native plant gardens, scenic viewsheds, battlegrounds, caves, and more. Hike or walk as many of the locations as desired, photo documenting along the way. Participants who hike or walk 15 of the 20 trails receive a “Sky’s the Limit” hiking staff medallion and a certificate for their efforts.  For hiking all 20 locations, 50 participants will receive a hand-carved hiking staff made by the CT DEEP Sawyer; and names of all who complete the 20 designated hikes will be randomly drawn.

    On January 1, 2023 names will be drawn from those who visited all twenty locations and 50 winners will receive a hand-carved hiking staff made by our DEEP Sawyer who works at our CT DEEP Sawmill. All entries are due by 3 pm on Friday, December 2, 2022.

    If you post your photos on social media, please use the #CTSTL2022 or #CTStateParks.

    Helpful Information:  For the safety of fellow STL hikers, DEEP staff, and others enjoying the trails, please remember the following when walking and hiking with the STL Hiking Challenge:

    If you’re not feeling well, stay home!

    If you arrive at a park or forest and crowds are forming, choose a different park and trail, or return another day or time.

    Warn other trail users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance and step off trails to allow others to pass. Signal your presence with your voice, bell, or horn.

    While enjoying your hike or walk, be safe outdoors by staying on the marked trails, and most importantly, have fun exploring.

    Bring water or drinks.

    Bring a whistle, sunblock, map and insect repellant.

    Dress for the weather.  It is best to dress in layers.  As you warm up while hiking, you can remove outer layers.

    Wear proper footwear based on weather and site conditions.

    Hunting is allowed in most state forests and some state parks so check out the CT Hunting and Trapping Guide and don't forget to wear orange during hunting season.  Also, bring a whistle or make noise so hunters know you are in the area.

    Be Bear Aware and do make your presence known by making noise while hiking.  If you see a bear, make enough noise and wave your arms so the bar is aware of your presence.

    Remember to protect yourself from Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases.

    Dogs must be on a leash for their safety, the safety of wildlife and fellow hikers.  Please see Notes section below for more information.

    Don't forget to bring a map and know what the trail blazes mean (don't think just because there is a wide open trail that is the correct way to go, there might be a spur trail that is not obvious.

    Be aware of your surroundings and check out options. There might be a trail that takes you around a steep area, consult your map.

    Remember to check the State Parks Twitter to confirm the park is open and plan your trip accordingly. With the Passport to Parks Program, Connecticut residents are no longer required to pay a parking fee at CT State Parks and Forest recreation areas, due to DMV collecting a $10 fee ($5 per year) on behalf of DEEP at the time of registration and registration renewals for non-commercial motor vehicles.
