In the lead-up to St. James Day, join the American Pilgrims Boston Chapter for a moderately difficult 8-mile training walk consisting of four repetitions to/from the summit of Great Blue Hill along Summit Road at Blue Hills State Reservation.
This walk includes 1,544 feet of elevation gain/loss and is intended to simulate the climb to/descent from O Cebreiro in Galicia. Plan for 4 hours.
This walk will be held rain or shine; extreme weather cancels. Participants are encouraged to don their fully loaded packs.
Meet at Blue Hills Trailside Museum, 1904 Canton Avenue, Milton, MA 02186. The walk’s guide, Joe, will have a red bandanna and a red pack.
