Belle Isle Marsh and Suffolk Downs Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This walk starts at Suffolk Downs—where trainer Tom Smith discovered the famous racehorse Seabiscuit—and then explores lovely Belle Isle Marsh, with views of Winthrop Island and Logan Airport. The paths are clear and easy to follow, so this tour makes a wonderful, easy stroll if you are looking for a bit of nature in East Boston.

Inside the visitor center, you can see one of the original steam-driven pumps from the 1890s and learn more about the history of the island. Continue toward the southernmost tip of the island, traversing in the shadow of a cluster of 150-foot-tall oval-shaped tanks. These are the sludge digesters, which busily process 3 million gallons of wastewater."
