This green-blazed loop encircles the Great Blue Hill section of Blue Hills Reservation lands. Often covering the lesser-traveled stretches, you’ll also experience a spur along the Skyline Trail scrambling up steep rock leading to the shell of an old stone dwelling and tower high up on a ridge with horizon views. Terrain ranges from rock ridges and vernal pools to wide-open mature pine groves. Explanations for the name Blue Hills range from the type of granite that figures so prominently along the route to the bluish tint of the foliage when viewed from afar.
