By now, you’re probably pretty tired, but you’ll need a second wind because the hike from Route 28 up to Buck Hill is a bear of a climb, though it is so worth it once you emerge from the woods and realize that you have a nearly 360 degree view
The original Thompson Island hike, which included Thompson Island itself, was something I’ll never forget for several reasons, but this perfectly legal walk includes mostly similar sights and may also give you a bit of cachet, since saying that you walked across Boston Harbor sounds like the stuff of legend.
Walking down to the dock brought us to extraordinary views of the harbor and the islands, and since it was around 7:30 pm, a sunset over the water that made our knees weak.
