Here is a place . . . . . . where you can walk a Civil War-era fort, visit historic lighthouses, explore tide pools, hike lush trails, camp under the stars, or relax while fishing, picnicking or swimming-all within reach of downtown Boston. Youth programs, visitor services, research, wildlife management, and more are coordinated on the park's 34 islands and peninsulas by the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership.

I am not sure how this generated a moderate listing when all the trails are gravelled and level. There are some offshoots that head out to a small point but again, nothing to be classified as moderate hiking. We saw plenty of strollers and ballet flats if that's any indication about the trails. Also, the description labelled this as "lightly trafficked". We found the exact opposite. The parking lot was rammed and people were milling about in every direction. It costs $6 per person to get in so I would give this is a miss if you're looking for an actual hike. Otherwise a nice stroll if you've got young kids.

Great walk around the bay. Lots of clean paths to walk. Many more cars in the parking lot than I ever expected. $6 a person admission fee.
