Welcome to Boston Greenbelt Walk
Welcome to the Boston Greenbelt Walk
The second annual Boston Greenbelt Walk is a one-day, 32-mile walk from Newton to Malden through parks and lands designated as "open space" or for conservation. This event has been scheduled for Saturday, May 30, 2015. Participants may choose to walk a lesser distance by leaving the event at points along the way but should be prepared to begin walking at either of two starting locations.
This walk is a coordinated effort organized by many local and regional trail coordinators, the transportation planning group of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), and the long-distance walking organization, FreeWalkers.
The Boston Greenbelt Trail is an MAPC proposed project encompassing approximately 90 mi of 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 public transit options back to Newton if you want to turn back sooner. The walk is free in celebration of connecting all the great trails around the Greater Boston area.
