Castle Island to Nickerson Beach Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For colonial Bostonians, the Old Harbor was not only a refreshing vista, but the anchor of their way of life and connection to the rest of the world.

This ride rounds the harbor from the fortified Castle Island in Dorchester, around UMass Boston’s seaside campus, and across to the cliffs of Quincy’s secluded Nickerson Beach, following the shoreline for extended views of the harbor and its numerous islets. With hefty doses of sea breezes and beachfront, this ride is the perfect seaside escape from landlocked doldrums."
