    The trail system in the Blue Hills offer something for all skill and conditioning levels. My wife and I hike there year round. To be sure, the hills are not comparable to the White Mountains but I enjoy the varied terrain. On the Skyline Trail (marked with blue blazes)you might be hiking up a steep hill for 15 minutes, then down hill for a while, then back uphill. It gives a change of pace that you don't get in the White Mountains when you travel up or downhill for hours at a time. If you don't like hills (and some are very steep and rocky) there are nearly flat trails marked with green blazes.

    This reservation,is in my opinion,well worth the trip. The trail system offers excellent hiking\mountain biking etc. for just about any skill level. The trails were very well maintained and very clearly blazed, I definately will return in the near future. Just the view of the boston skyline is something to marvel at, not to mention other attractions including an observatory and museum also. All in all this will remain one of my favorites for some time to come.
