Nice easy walk around the island. Yes, it can smell at certain points, but it’s not the entire walk. It was overcast today but still beautiful. Gorgeous Boston city skyline. Easy walk for the dogs with paved trail the entire way. Small parking lot. Would love to come back with sunny skies.

Pretty flat paved trail along the edge of the water. Parking lot has about 20 spaces. Beautiful views of the city.

I prefer to go on the week days, as it can get quite crowded most weekends. Nice view of Boston and the harbor islands. I like to take the trails that are off the main trail for a more nature feel.

I went there last weekend and I had a blast. being from Winthrop I've been there plenty of times but every time is a new experience.

I walk this regularly (at least twice a week). here are some little trails off the beaten path hat nobody uses but the regulars. It can get pretty crowded but the ocean view is amazing, plus heading towards the city as the sun is going down is beautiful.

Nice view if boston city center and harbor islands, especially at sunrise or sunset. Free parking but small. The bad side is that the path is around a sewage station so the smell and the view is quite bad...

Great view! Not so great smell. Quite dynamic when the wind is right and the waves crash on the seawall.
