Blue Hills is a fantastic local resource for some back-to-basics family fun. We've been going there since the kids were little. We head to Blue Hills for a hike at least once each summer. We’ve only explored the red trail so far – it’s an easy hike to the top to see Eliot Tower and the weather observatory.
Start off at the Trailside Museum and map out your route.
There are a few rocky spots along the way – be sure to wear proper footwear!
The kids love to stop at Eliot Tower for a snack break and to check out the amazing views.
The weather observatory has a gift shop and bathroom (thank goodness).
Trails start at the Trailside museum, located at 695 Hillside Street in Milton. Blue Hills offers many trail options, varying in length and difficulty. Before you head out, take a look at the Blue Hills Map & Brochure!
