Blue Hills Reservation Professional Review and Guide
"Start at a sea-level pond and bog and, in just 0.5 mile, climb nearly 500 feet to Tucker
Hill, passing through three separate ecosystems. Follow the high ridge along the
much-loved Skyline Trail to Buck Hill (496 feet) with its views of the Boston skyline,
Boston Harbor, and fantastic sunsets. Then return from scattered pine, hemlock, and
scrub oak on the rocky ridgeline to lush lily pads, maples, and sandy bogs below."
