Join LL Bean Dedham for a winter hike of the Blue Hills’ Skyline Trail from Houghton’s Pond to Buck Hill! This vigorous hike provides a great workout that culminates with one of the best views in the Blue Hills on the summit of Buck Hill!
This is a moderately challenging hike up and down hilly terrain, and is a great practice hike for tackling some of the larger peaks up north! On a clear day, you can see the city of Boston, the Harbor Islands, and even Mount Monadnock (NH)!
Please dress accordingly for a winter hike. This includes dressing in layers (no cotton), wearing warm socks (made of merino wool, fleece, or other synthetic materials), hat, gloves or mitts, jacket, and waterproof boots/footwear.
Be sure to bring at least a liter (32 oz.) of water, and a couple of high energy snacks to have along the way, in particular on the summit of Buck Hill!
Please arrive 15 minutes before the starting time to ensure we start on time.
