      The Blue Hills Reservation includes 7000 acres of varied terrain. It ranges from woodlands to marsh to rocky hills. There is an extensive, well-marked and maintained trail system with miles of fire road, double and single track. There are great views of Boston and the south shore from several hill tops. Other activities available include hiking, swimming, canoeing and horseback riding. There is a designated swimming area at Houghton Pond as well as a refreshment stand. Great Blue Hill is the second highest "coastal mountain" on the East Coast. (A coastal mountain is any mountain from which you can see the ocean)
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
