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.

Mostly walking not hiking (though you can get some in if you climb the hills—and don't miss the rocky ledge area!) but so so beautiful. I've never seen scenes so diverse in one park.

Really beautiful walk! Lots of trails so you can make it longer or shorter.

Nice little walk with beautiful views on Sunday before brunch. A south shore gem. Haven't tried yet but seems like a decent loop for beginner trail running. Lots of dogs and can be tough to park.

Good little walk with good views. Small hills but the paths are majority paved so all ages can enjoy this walk or run.

A relaxing, beautiful walk.
