White Triangle Blue Hills Walk Low Moderate 5.75 Miles (Changed from Beginner)

We've changed the skill level for this hike from beginner to low intermediate. Please review to see if this hike is right for you.

Great for advanced beginner to intermediate hikers, terrain for the White Triangle is similar but a little rougher and a bit longer than the Ponkapoag trail. It's a rolling loop and considered a long woodland hike. There are flat sections along with several rolling hills. Parts of the loop have sections with smaller rocks (which you can easily slip on; using hiking boots minimizes this)!

Please have have hiking boots (trail runners and strong sneakers will do in a pinch), and water. Hiking poles are optional. With "rolling hills" and LOTS of turns, please pay attention so as not to get lost.

There is a "hill climb" near the last 1/3 of the hike. Not very "steep" or "long", it takes 6-9 minutes at a slow/moderate pace. This can be by-passed if people are too tired, too dark or the weather/terrain is bad. 
  We start and end as a group. Those who go ahead of the  group are own their own... not advised because you can easily get lost.

NOTE: Please be considerate of your hosts who are volunteers. As always your safety and enjoyment are your responsibility. 

We will leave promptly @ 10:35 am. This hike should take 1:45 to 2:00 hours to complete. Please allow extra driving time for traffic delays and parking. Well meet by the picnic tables near the Park Ranger HQ/State Police. Water and restroom facilities are available at the Park Headquarters.

      I'm sorry you missed us. Re-paving around Milton caused horrific delays. As you say, next time!

    FYI...There's paving being performed on Route 128 Southbound on Saturdays. Three lanes become two. This can add about 1/2 hour to your drive time.

    Is there a wait list?

    • The Gerry L.

      Not at the moment. We have 37 attendees so far (14 from another group)...a lot of people to keep track of. If the list diminishes significantly, may consider it.

    I've been hearing so much about the Blue Hills. Glad to have a chance to hike it. Gerry Lama will be an excellent guide.

    Can you wear regular walking shoes or do you have to have hiking shoes - I do walk but never hiked.

    • The Gerry L.

      At minimum, I recommend "trail runners" for this hike. Hiking shoes are best because they offer ankle protection, toe protection and better traction on uneven terrain (like what this trail will be). That said, very fit/experienced hikers have done it in sneakers (but they are the exception).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
