The One Incredible Trail That Spans The Entire City Of Boston

Water views are always desirable and there’s one trail in Boston that offers expansive ocean – and river – vistas to those willing to explore it. You’ve probably already hiked some of the HarborWalk’s 43 miles, whether you knew it or not. Still, there are many more things to see and do along this route than you may have realized.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

So, whether you’re looking for an urban walk or a city oasis, this trail will meet your needs.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has recently received funding to create a HarborWalk Benefits Map to make the trail easier to use. While that project isn’t yet complete, it suggests that this hike will get even better in years to come. Learn more about this at the website for Boston Harbor Now.
