It’s Father’s Day this weekend! Instead of the usual breakfast in bed, take your dad out for a nice summer hike on Sunday, June 19, 2011 at 1 p.m. in Milton. You and your dad will pair up with a DCR Ranger and journey through the woods on a three mile hike around DCR's Blue Hills Reservation. The reservation is home to many different plants and animals, and you might even catch a glimpse of the endangered timber rattlesnake!
