Visit DCR's Bue Hills Reservation this Saturday, July 9 from 1 to 3p.m. to join the Blue Hills Adult Walking Club in hiking the loop around the base of Great Blue Hill. While the terrain may sometimes be hilly, for the loop crosses one of the reservations advanced trails, the hike will mostly be moderate. Stretching for 3.5 miles, you will walk to Puddle Path and Brookwood Trail, with a chance to taste some wild blueberries! Falcons and hawks are also known to circle this part of the reservation quite frequently, so be camera ready!

Be sure to wear comfortable hiking boots and bring drinking water. This program is open to people 16 years of age and older, and new walkers are encouraged to join. A DCR Park Ranger will lead the hike, and best of all, the hike is free!
