The Boston Greenbelt Walk is a one-day, 6 to 32-mile walk largely in parks from Waban Station in Newton to Oak Grove Station in Malden on May 30, 2015. There are two starting points in Newton - Waban Station (arrive by 6:30 am) or Riverside Station (arrive by 7:30). You may choose to walk less than the total distance.
This is our second annual walking event produced as a coordinated effort by many local and regional trail coordinators, the transportation planning group of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), and the FreeWalkers.
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. This year we ask all participants that wish to join the event to meet us at either Waban or Riverside T stations. The walk is free in celebration of connecting all the great trails around the Greater Boston area.
Everyone is invited to take part in the challenge of walking a long distance in one long day. Experience a variety of trails, natural features, communities, and people.
