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!
