Lookout/Views

Dogs (leashed)

This 1.6 mile loop hike at the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, Massachusetts covers a small portion of the Skyline Trail (blue blazes), part of the Dark Hollow Trail (green blazes), and part of the Headquarters Path Trail.

From the main parking lot, across the street from the state police station, take the trailhead for the Skyline Trail and follow the blue blazes until you reach the top of Tucker Hill and see an intersection with green blazes. Follow the green blazes north, as this is the Dark Hollow Trail. The Dark Hollow Trail will lead you downhill from Tucker Hill toward Chickatawbut Road. Once you reach the part of the trail where Chickatawbut Road connects with Hillside Road, you'll hop directly onto the Headquarters Path Trail, which leads directly back to parking to complete the loop.

Views: There isn't much for views on Tucker Hill, but there's a small lookout-type area.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
