I hope to make a regular feature here on BLISSFUL HIKING of guest bloggers and their favorite hiking trails in and around our great nation.
Here is a trail by a guest blogger for those who live near metro Boston. Enjoy this bit of nature.
Hiking New England Locales
For all those Bostonians out there, hiking can be a great respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Take the kids out and go for a little climb or hike. Don’t let winter blues get you down, go to Blue Hills!
The Blue Hills Skyline trail is near Milton, MA and is just a short trip from the city. Some highlights include: gorgeous views, nice terrain and most of all convenience to Boston, Eastern Massachusetts and all of Southern New England. Since the trail the entire trail should only take you about 3 hours, this is great for day-trippers. The trail is quite well maintained, so is not too rough to navigate. And at 5.7 miles round-trip (loop), you will burn some extra calories, but you wont have holes in your shoes when you return.
This trail is great year-round, so get out there this weekend. Fresh air is always a great cure for the winter blues. And as an added bonus, hiking is a fun way to exercise, so don’t give up on those new years resolutions yet!
