Nicely accessible from Boston by car or public transportation (bus and train), Blue Hills offers an oasis of nature in a densely populated area. Plenty of parking at the Houghton's Pond lot. Nice hikes with great views of Boston and the surrounding towns. Mountain Biking trails are clearly marked (please don't stray from those; some trails are off limits to biking to prevent erosion and other damage.) These trails range from very easy and family friendly to more moderate. It's a good place for novice bikers to get out and get some experience.
Route 93 (North or South) to exit 3. Follow the signs to Houghton's Pond. MBTA: Red Line to Ashmont station, transfer to Mattapan; bus service to Houghton's Pond.
