With a temp over 60 and 100% sunshine, it was a magnificent day for a hike. Quite a lot of vertical climbing, it seemed, for a peak that's only 635 ft. The Skyline goes up and down a lot.

Who knew the Blue HIlls could be so fabulous! Proving once again you don't have to climb a 4000 footer to have a great hike and a great time. Thanks to Brooks for organizing this hike and to the guys who participated.

Brooks does it again! Thanx for your leadership. After my smashing entrance (falling off my bike in the parking lot) we started straight up the steep path to the top. It was a glorious day, temps reaching 67* I'm told, still some bright colors, and a good hike. A carpet of fallen leaves made the rocks a tad slippery especially on the descent, but all managed safely. Grateful for GO! sAm
