Fodor's Expert Review Belle Isle Marsh Reservation

South Boston Trail
Free
This 300-acre patch of remaining wetland environment is indicative of the salt marsh landscape that covered Boston when early settlers arrived and which today has been filled in. As you walk or run Belle Isle's gravel paths, listen to the sound of the marsh's diverse bird community, which includes American Kestrel, Belted Kingfisher, Great Blue Heron, Northern Harrier and the Saltmarsh Sparrow. Boardwalks venture into the marsh for great viewing and photo opps.
