Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 10:15 AM until 2:30 PM
Payment In Advance Or At Event
Just 20 minutes from Boston, Spectacle Island is home to the highest point in the harbor, the North Drumlin, with panoramic views of the city and islands. The Island has a storied history, which you’ll learn more about on this trip. After our short ferry ride, we’ll set out for a hike on some of the Island’s five miles of walking trails. Plan on walking at least a couple of miles (or less, if you choose), with some gradual climbing. After our walk, we’ll have time to relax on the shaded porch of the Visitor’s Center. Bring lunch and water. Meet at Long Wharf-North Pier, on the north side of the Long Wharf Marriott, next to Christopher Columbus Park, at 10:15 a.m. for the 10:30 a.m. ferry. Return trip is on the 2 p.m. boat. The closest T stop is Aquarium on the Blue Line. BHV members, their guests and prospective members: $13.
