DCR First Day Hike

Head for the Hills for the Grand Daddy of First Day Hikes!

Are you looking to get out to stretch your legs on New Year’s Day? Join DCR Staff for a First Day Hike through the Blue Hills Reservation.

Starting at 11 am, meet Blue Hills Trailside live wildlife at Houghton’s Pond with the Mass Audubon staff, purchase a cup of hot cocoa and a snack from the Quincy Venture Scouts and share some New Year’s cheer. Please consider bringing a nonperishable food item for Interfaith Social Services.

Starting at 12 pm, DCR staff will lead two easy to moderate hikes for a 1-hour or 1.5-hour trek in the great outdoors. There will also one self-guided option. Choose the hike to suit your interest and ability. Dress warmly and wear sturdy hiking boots for all hikes.
