Grass lands, streams, and mature forests. A nice hike, not technical.Some of the grassy areas are narrow and quite tall so use proper tick precautions. A few muddy spots but the trails were well marked and well maintained in most areas.

An old farm implement abandoned at the edge of the forest.  I imagine this was likely used until it broke down and was left just off the fields.

Hike to the summit of Blue Mountain. The trail was rugged and rocky, but well marked. It had rained the day before so everything was wet and muddy. I took a pretty relaxed pace and reached the summit in about 2 hours. On the summit is a old fire tower. The view from the fire tower is fantastic. (See the Photos!)

As you approach the summit the trees start clearing offering some great views of Blue Mountain Lake, Other peaks, and out to the horizon.
