Absolutely gorgeous views of Boston and the harbor islands. As a local this is a beautiful place to go and enjoy the outside as well as a piece of history with egg treatment facility. A must visit if you are in the area.

A beautiful and great walk! Scenic, paved, beaches, wildlife. The bus picks up at Inn at Crystal Cove and drops at Deer Island, or the walk to Deer Island would add a little more mileage (steps) to your daily count.

Great 2 and a half mile walk as far from the city as you can get and still be in the city (make no mistake: Deer Island is Boston, although the parking area is Winthrop). Almost always you'll feel a nice breeze cooling you down...More

Great 3 mile walk with the Atlantic one one side and the recycling facility on the other. Takes about an hour depending on your speed, (toilets are available on your way). The day we did it was very windy so take a jacket.

I ran down here from my hotel during a recent stay and loved it. The walk is paved and although it has a few hills, it has great views of Winthrop and the coastline as well as the city and airport on the other side....More

Many options: short, long, run, walk, bike or skate, easy, hard. Always fantastic views of Boston, the north shore and the harbor. Wildlife sightings too. Educational postings along the way to learn something new/historical. Friendly people! Dog friendly (on leashes).
