    We stumbled on the observatory during a hike in the Blue Hills Reservation. We went looking for the highest point around, and found the observatory there. It was pretty impressive! The structure is over 100 years old. The ranger on duty was incredibly kind and very informative about the history of the observatory. She also provided a quick lesson on the atmospheric and weather observations still going on there, as well as providing a review of ways to access the information via computer. There's also a road that leads from the parking lot to the observatory, which worked out well for us, as we were done in by the long-way-around hike we took to get there. Definitely worth a visit. Be sure to bring a few bucks for a donation to help keep the observatory open for future visitors!

    If you walk to the top of the Blue Hill on the weekend, you can take a brief tour of the observatory. It was worth the $3.00 to get to the top, at least on clear days. They also offer more extensive tours, but we didn’t do that.

    Big fan of this place a little less in the winter when people are skiing. The trails are easy on the knees and not difficult. Try walking up the access road for the best work out
