First Day Hike from Carson Beach to Dorchester Heights

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A First Day Hike is a fun way to start off the new year with an invigorating hike in a beautiful state park, and also make a resolution to burn off those extra holiday calories!

 Join staff from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), the National Park Service (NPS) and Boston Harbor Now for a scenic 1.6 mile walk along a portion of Boston’s Harbor Walk up to the NPS’s Dorchester Heights. Visitors will learn about the site’s fortification in the revolutionary war.  Meet at DCR’s Carson Beach Bathhouse at 11:45 a.m.    

 Be prepared for cold weather by dressing in layers and wearing winter boots.  Carson Beach is located on Day Boulevard, South Boston.  Carson Beach is t-accessible.  Take the Red Line to JFK/UMass and walk down William J. Day Boulevard.
