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!
All parents and children 8 and up should meet at DCR's Shea Rink parking lot at 651 Willard Street in Quincy. Chickatawbut Road will be closed during the weekend with hopes that many more families will also spend their Father’s Day outdoors!
