The Bay Circuit Trail and Greenway:
Extending 230 miles and spanning some 37 towns, The Bay Circuit Trail encircles the Greater Boston Area between I-495 and 128, running from Plum Island in the north to Kingston Bay, Duxbury to the south. Conceived in 1929 as an "Outer Emerald Necklace", it mirrors Boston's famed Olmsted-designed "Emerald Necklace" stringing together parks and open spaces as "jewels" along a linked pathway for walking, jogging, XC skiing, bicycling, and where appropriate rollerblading and horseback riding. Many greenway sections are accessible by commuter rail and other transit systems.

Al French, "Mr. Bay Circuit", has hiked the entire BCT trail four times. As professional videographers, the Brielmanns have interviewed dozens of trail explorers and documented their adventures. AMC as lead organization is gap filling the few remaining missing trail links and provides trail stewardship. Waterproof printed BCT map and guide is available from the AMC at amcstore.outdoors.org/books-maps/maps/massachusetts/bay-circuit-trail-map-and-guide. Online maps and trail descriptions can be found at: www.baycircuit.org/maps-guides/


  • The Bay Circuit trail has so many great hidden spots, some feel so secluded you would never know you are in a populated area. We are so lucky to have such a great trail network!
