Blue Hills Trail CONDITIONS
Good hiking on trails that have been cleared of debris from the December 2022 ice storm. When hiking, bring gloves and please remove some tree debris (branches etc) leftover from the ice storm. Trails involved in logging last fall have a dirt surface rather than grass (see logging notes under 'Important Updates').
NOTE: The December 2022 destructive ice storm limits the number of trails cleared of tree damage. Click here for maps showing cleared trails.
Bug activity has been high: bring a hat and bug spray.
1-There's active logging on the West Side between intersections Y & Z, avoid that area while they're logging.
2-Autumn 2022, loggers cut a large timber sale on the East Side. It's probably wise to avoid hiking those trails in all but very dry weather. Click here for a map showing the involved trails.
April 30: damp leaf top dusting
grooming & MOWING
Mowing Report / Plans:
We usually begin trail mowing in late June. Check back for updates.
