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.

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.

One of the best city park walks I’ve ever done! Fantastic! Beats Central Park, IMO.

Great, easy, paved walking path. Summer sunsets here are incredible.

Enjoyed the wooded trails near the river so we got to almost 4 mi without staying on pavement

Stars are for the fall foliage. Flat, easy to walk, very pretty but that’s about it

Great place to walk your dog. Well trained, friendly dogs are off leash, less friendly dogs are kept on leash.

fun trail through the city of Boston. this is a mix of dedicated bike Lanes and crossings through major intersections. Better in the earlier part of a weekend due to traffic, both people and vehicle kind during a beautiful day.

I work in Boston and walking through or just a break after work is great! New Years Family fireworks are great! 7:00 pm

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.

We went for a relaxed and leisurely stroll around the pond. We parked at Olmstead park and walked down to Jamaica pond. Beautiful views, shady pathway, dogs on leashes, lots of geese with their younglings. Highly recommend for families and the elderly. Easy stroll. Boat rentals are also available.

Boston is so rich in the history of our nation and an excellent place to visit with the children. There is so much to explore!

I enjoyed the walk and the landscape was pretty on a fall day. The main paths are paved and there are a few smaller trails throughout the route that are unpaved but cleared. I had not walked there before and it was worth the trip.

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?
