This trail is wide and flat and looks great for families. There's a small observation tower that allows you to see the marshland, Boston skyline. and if you look closely a sliver of the Atlantic Ocean. This place also looks great for birders or for those looking to take a picnic.

Belle Isle Marsh is an urban preserve that contains the last of the saltmarshes that were once prevalent along the coast near Boston. It contains a short loop path of less than a mile, along with some boardwalks and a wooden viewing tower. We started along the flat gravel path and made our way into the marsh. We visited under gray skies but the contrasting colors were still striking. We were surprised to see other visitors, but it appears to be a popular spot for joggers and dog walkers. Belle Isle Marsh is a scenic spot, but probably best seen under blue skies. But if you come in the summer, be prepared with high-test repellant containing DEET. The saltmarsh mosquitoes here are especially vicious, as we found out earlier in August, when we came unprepared and were driven out by the bugs. We visited and reviewed all state parks in MA.

A lovely little piece of nature to have a walk through - one gravel walkway (red on map) is supplemented with grass walkways through the wildflowers. One tall observation tower and two docks provide great viewing stops. Scattered benches throughout the trail provide a nice spot for a rest if needed.
