Boston Harbor Spectacle Island

Boston Harbor: Spectacle Island Professional Review and Guide

"Once a landfill, Spectacle Island offers amazing views of Boston and the coast from the highest point in Boston Harbor.
The main ferry departure points are Long Wharf in Boston and the Hingham Shipyard. The former offers more flexible times and is closer to attraction in Boston, while the latter is easy to reach by car.

This hike explores Spectacle Island, which has been revitalized after serving as a landfill for many years. This route climbs the North Drumlin, then follows a portion of the island's perimeter trail (which is 1.8 miles long and ADA accessible) as it loops back to the pier."
