Hiking: lots of rain the last part of May. Hot weather is drying the trails, hiking conditions have improved again. Grasses are knee high (or taller) and growing fast.
Biking: the West Side trails may provide some decent biking. That area tends to be the driest.
Bugs: bring insect repellant.
April 24, 2021: snow showers
Summertime mowing usually starts in late June. Check back for updates.
March 6th: groomed the skate lane on parts of the East Side and West Side ski trails. With a BIG warm-up in the forecast, this was the final grooming of the winter.
Mountain biking at the Blue Hills Trail is most enjoyable on the West Side of the trail system. The East Side trails tend to be more damp and softer, and take quite a bit of dry weather before they dry out. The West Side trails are more firm, with only occasional wet spots.
In mid June, biking the entire West Side was a good workout. Grasses were only mid calf tall, and soils were firm. One short portion of trail between J-K was flooded knee deep, but could be crossed on foot.
Since so much of the trail system remains soft throughout the year, fat tire biking is a great alternative. The trails are wide, the curves are easily negotiable. It’s a great way to explore the trails during summer / fall.
