There will be a Sunset Hike on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Complimentary hot cider and apples will be served at the top of the mountain. Hikers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner to enjoy at the summit. This is a self-guided hike. The Blue Hill Observatory will be open from 4:30-7:00 p.m. and will provide tours and viewing for a slight fee.
This is the only opportunity to hike down Great Blue at night. After sunset, the ski area lights will be on to guide the way. For safety reasons, all hikers should check in at the ski area at the base of the hill before and after the hike. Hikers are encouraged to bring flashlights if they have them.
