Boston South Bay Harbor Trail

Boston South Bay Harbor Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The South Bay Harbor Trail is very much a work in progress—as well as an ambitious and exuberant entry into the list of Boston’s paths. Leading from inner-city neighborhoods to the harbor, some segments of the path are completed, while other parts are being built, and still others depend on construction help from abutting parcels.

The path was initially made possible by focusing on links with large-scale transportation facilities. One section of it was created during construction of the Orange Line through the South End and Roxbury; another part parallels the Big Dig/Central Artery construction that affects so much of central Boston. The 3.4-mile trail begins at the MBTA’s Ruggles Orange Line Station in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood and follows the edge of the South End and Fort Point Channel communities until it reaches the harbor waterfront in South Boston. By carving out a path through a relatively unexplored area, it represents a new approach to urban walks."
