Boston Park Rangers, Urban Wilds staff, and Parks employees will provide formal and informal discussions or tours during the hikes. Some hikes may be more focused on taking a walk in the park, while others may be more informational.

Description: Join a Boston Park Ranger for a short walk, interpretive talk, or day hike and learn more about Boston's park system. Guided hikes and walks vary in length from .5 miles up to 4 miles. Depending on the length, they can last from 30 minutes up to 3 hours. All guided hikes and walks will begin at a predetermined location in the area in which they are offered. Restrooms and drinking water may or may not be available, come prepared with whatever you will need for the tour.

Topics and routes will vary depending on the location. Rangers will provide information on the natural and cultural history of the park throughout the walk or hike. These tours are offered in many areas of the city, including; Franklin Park, Jamaica Pond and Olmsted Park, The Back Bay Fens, and the Boston Common.
