South Bay Harbor Trail Description

The South Bay Harbor Trail will one day connects several Boston neighborhoods—Lower Roxbury, the South End, Chinatown, and Fort Point Channel—to the Boston Harbor.

Currently, the route offers nearly 2 miles of paved pathway beginning at Ruggles Station, on MBTA's Orange Line. Just outside the station, at Columbus Avenue, you can connect to the Pierre Lallement Bike Path, which runs through Southwest Corridor Park.

The trail continues past Broadway Station on the Red Line. Bikes are allowed on the MBTA subway system, just not during rush hours (7-10 a.m. and 4-7 p.m. weekdays) due to crowding. Just north of the station, you'll find a bike rack for Hubway, Boston's bike-sharing system.

The trail ends at Albany Street, but future plans call for extending the trail to Fan Pier in South Boston.

Parking and Trail Access

Access is available via the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) subway system. The trail begins at Ruggles Station (at the intersection of Ruggles Street and Tremont Street in Boston) on the Orange Line and also connects to Broadway Station (at the intersection of Dorchester Avenue and Broadway), which is on the Red Line.
