There are tons of walking trails with different obstacles and levels in mind. There are a few steep areas that give an intermediate hiker some fun, but can be avoided if you are more novice.

This 8,500 acre park incorporates parts of the City of Quincy, Milton, and Canton.

Whether you want walking trails or hiking trails, you can easily drive in, step out of your car and be on the path in no time.

Great place to spend the day outside walking or enjoying the view. Good for the dogs and the kids. Get back to nature in the Blue Hills.
