Absolutely gorgeous views of Boston and the harbor islands. As a local this is a beautiful place to go and enjoy the outside as well as a piece of history with egg treatment facility. A must visit if you are in the area.

A beautiful and great walk! Scenic, paved, beaches, wildlife. The bus picks up at Inn at Crystal Cove and drops at Deer Island, or the walk to Deer Island would add a little more mileage (steps) to your daily count.

We walked around the deer island waste water treatment plant. A less than 4 miles biking/jogging trail encircles the island. We have best views from here to look around highrocket buildings in Boston and several harbor islands. There are several 150 feet tall egg like...More

Great 2 and a half mile walk as far from the city as you can get and still be in the city (make no mistake: Deer Island is Boston, although the parking area is Winthrop). Almost always you'll feel a nice breeze cooling you down...More

Great 3 mile walk with the Atlantic one one side and the recycling facility on the other. Takes about an hour depending on your speed, (toilets are available on your way). The day we did it was very windy so take a jacket.
