It was a beautiful ride, very close to the wind turbines.Even though it was along the waste treatment plant, there were no offensive odors.

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.

Many options: short, long, run, walk, bike or skate, easy, hard. Always fantastic views of Boston, the north shore and the harbor. Wildlife sightings too. Educational postings along the way to learn something new/historical. Friendly people! Dog friendly (on leashes).
