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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
