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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

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.
