Name: Colleen Brombacher

Town: Randolph. MA

FBH volunteer activities: Trail clean up, anything else I can participate in.

FBH member since: 2013

Favorite Hike: It’s a combination of trails but I like to park on 28 and run or hike across part of the Forest Path loop over to Houghton Pond.  I bring my dog and she likes to cool down in the pond before we head back to the car.

Favorite thing to do in the Blue Hills:  Running and swimming with the dog.

Funniest thing that happened at the Blue Hills: I went running one day last summer and came across a deer, it got startled and ran off only to end up back in my path because I was on a winding loop. We kept running in to each other and I had to stop and laugh because the deer kept being so surprised.

Favorite activities with Friends of the Blue Hills: Trail clean up.  It’s always an opportunity to learn something new!
