Nice little loop around the fort and the harbor. The hours to tour the actual fort are very limited. This is a fun walk especially if you combine it with other sections of the harbor walk.

Great place to ride and watch the planes land at Logan .

I would recommend this trail for someone looking for a dog-friendly trail or a trail with great picnic areas and views.

Out to castle island with stops to play and get ice cream

Great views of the water and a bit of history with Fort Independence to walk around. There was a nice breeze off the ocean and it was s relaxing easy walk. If your timing is right, Sullivan’s has great lobster rolls and it’s located at the parking lot adjacent to the trail and the fort.

Lots of doggos being walked. Beautiful view of Boston Harbor. Overall great walk. Perfect areas for a picnic.

This is by far my favorite trail in the Boston area especially for evening walk. The sunset view from here is simply sublime and the views is unbeatable. And on windy days you are treated to wind surfers doing stunts on the bay. There is a nice children's playground and a really cool clam shack called Sullivan. I also enjoy watching planes go by at really close level from here. And from the pier you can see all kinds of boats go in and out of the harbor. I enjoy watching those dinner or party boat cruise go by. The only minus is that it gets much windier than anywhere else in Boston.

I was in Boston for a conference and looking for a nice, easy trail to ride a rented bicycle. This was a perfect little excursion. It was very easy to get to, the trail is paved, and there are accessible beach areas. There are also public restrooms and a snack bar. Very nice!

Very pleasant, why not?

can't believe I spent most of my life hearing about this place but hadn't visited. I really like it... water views, city views. nice place to picnic. play area for kids. paved paths. watch plane activity at Logan.

I run this route regularly and love the ocean views. There were a few puddles along the route today that were leftover from (I'm guessing) a snowstorm that happened a few weeks ago. A lot of families will walk around this route when the weather is nice enough (e.g. today there were a lot of families and it was 45 degrees and sunny). I don't usually see wildflowers, but sometimes there are kite surfers (who can be carried maybe 20 feet up in the air) and Fort Independence is a cool place to visit too.

I love jogging here it's beautiful

Come see the planes overhead heading for Logan International Airport. The hike is easy and there is a parking lot at the entrance.

love the sunsets here, we come all the time, and when it's a full moon, it looks amazing on the water

nice walk go views of Boston Harbor

Not sure how it's 6 miles.... I just finished using Map My Hike and it is a 2.2 mile loop.

Love walking this route! Scenery is great. easy walk
