Blue Hills Reservation, 9/26/10

Patriots playing today – better head away from Gillette Stadium to hike and avoid the traffic. Parked along Route 28, Milton/Randolph and hiked in along the Sky Line Trail (blue blazes) to the summit of Chicatawbut Hill. VERY steep, scrambling over rock slope, hands over feet, looking for a foothold at times. Had to toss the hiking sticks up the slope, and hold onto any crags we could find. A lot of nice, open overlooks – view of the Blue Hill Observatory from one, pond from another.  Then headed down the red blazed trail that is supposed to be rocky and steep – but that was easy and wide compared to the Sky Line Trail.  Perfect weather, about 1 1/2 hour hike, over 4 miles. Then home in time for the Pats’ win over Buffalo.
