6/2/10 Carter Nature Preserve/Blue Hill Mtn.

Another suggestion from Scott. A part of the Blue Hill Heritage Trust. A mix of sun and clouds but no rain. We went to the Carter Nature Preserve first. A short trail on Newbury Neck. It begins in fields and woods, dips down to the water and then back into the woods to end at a little inlet. Instead of returning through the woods we returned along the shore.


We then went to hike Blue Hill Mtn. and started on the Osgood Trail on Mountain Rd. This was a pretty trail through mostly woods

until near the summit where you start to get views.

Near the radio tower we connected with the Hayes Trail which dropped quickly at first

but soon becomes more gentle and offers more views.

We took the South Face Trail back to the Osgood( it's not marked as such but rather indicates the trail you are headed toward-on the Osgood the sign says Hayes and vice-versa) . This short trail also has some nice views. We returned to the Hayes and continued down the trail which becomes meadow

  1. The Osgood Trail really makes the hike up Blue Hill Mt more substantial and interesting than just going up and down the Hayes Trail like I always had. Last year was my first time doing the whole loop.

  2. Hi Scott

    And I think you were right about going up Osgood and down Hayes.

  3. Nice scenery. I like the flower pics too.

  4. Hi John
