The DCR Blue Hills Reservation, in cooperation with the Trailside Museum Charitable Trust has published the latest version of the Blue Hills map.

You’ll notice a few minor changes from the last printing (in September 2010), including:

  • Two trail closures for resource protection at Hemlock Bound Trail and Rattlesnake Hill – single track trails
  • Added 23 additional intersection markers for improved orientation
