Get your adventure to the islands started with our Library Trailheads!
We are so excited to introduce our Library Trailheads in libraries all throughout Boston and many of Boston’s surrounding towns. The trailheads are intended to mimic trailheads on hiking paths that indicate where you are now and how to get to other points of interest. We hope that the trailheads bring about awareness of the Boston Harbor Islands and facilitate knowledge of how to navigate to the islands from the various participating libraries, via Long Wharf North Ferry Terminal.
The trailheads display maps that contain step by step directions using mass transit to the Boston Harbor Islands ferry station at Long Wharf North. The trailheads also provide information about our 2-for-1 passes to the Boston Harbor Islands. Ask a librarian for the electronic code, and simply plug in the code when booking tickets online through Boston Harbor Cruises. The discount works for up to four people on weekdays throughout the ferry season.
Visit our Library Trailhead page for more information on the participating libraries, trip planning, and all the wonderful events we have going on on the islands.
