Blue Hills Reservation-Hemenway Hill Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Located just southwest of Boston, the 7,000-acre Blue Hills Reservation offers a glimpse of the past and a sense of how the land may have looked before the city existed. The Blue Hills Reservation is there today thanks in large part to landscape architectCharles Eliot, who campaigned hard for its creation in the late 1800s.

A refuge for deer, birds, amphibians, and a few footloose coyotes well versed in urban living, the Blue Hills—truly a stone’s throw from the edge of the Boston metropolis—is a soothing woodland escape."
