The Boston Greenbelt Walk is a one-day, 30-mile walk largely in parks from Oak Grove Station in Malden to Riverside Station in Newton on May 17, 2014.
The Boston Greenbelt Trail is a proposed 90 mile walking trail circling Boston. The trail would connect between Salem and Quincy inside Rt 128, connecting numerous large and small parks and open spaces including Lynn Woods, Breakheart Reservation, Middlesex Fells, Horn Pond, Cummings Park, Across Lexington, the Western Greenway, and Aqueduct trails. The Greenbelt would also serve as catalyst to preserve some of the remaining undeveloped lands in urbanized Boston as well as to improve conditions for pedestrians along and across busy roadways. The Greenbelt Walk will focus on a 30 mile segment of this corridor
The walk is planned to maximize the use of public transportation from the beginning to the end – and in between. There are options to walk a shorter section of the route, plus limited support along the way. The walk is free in celebration of connecting all the great trails around the Greater Boston area.
Everyone is invited ti take part in the challenge of walking a long distance in one long day. Experience a variety of trails, natural features, communities, and people.
