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

It was a beautiful ride, very close to the wind turbines.Even though it was along the waste treatment plant, there were no offensive odors.

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).

We walked the full circle twice in one day. The view is lovely and everyone if friendly. You get a real sense of the area.

We enjoyed a lovely walk - the Deer Island HarborWalk's trails cover about 3 miles of walking - and then enjoyed a great lunch in the quaint town of Winthrop (lots of eateries from which to choose). It was a tad windy on our walk...More

Thought the walk around castle island in South Boston was great until I walked Deer Island. View is spectacular! No Sully's there but don't let that stop you, there's lots of great restauants in Winthrop!
