Rocky Narrows

Rocky Narrows Professional Review and Guide

"You'll see the Charles River at its finest on this hike. Starting off from a field kept cleared since farming days, the trail leads through reforested agricultural land to a canoe landing before tracking the river.

Begin your hike on the slender path called the Red Trail that starts to the left of the Forest Street parking area at the head of a meadow. Rocky Narrows is a gateway to the Charles River and the Bay Circuit Trail—a 200-mile continuous greenway around Boston from Kingston and Duxbury on the south shore to Plum Island."

"Hike down the shores of the Charles River, starting at a canoe launch before climbing high within a short time up on a granite ridge above the narrows with 50-foottall rock walls on either side of the river.

Nature watching abounds in the marshland fringing this river, which is not only a Boston landmark but also an important
regional ecosystem."
