National Geographic has released a Trails Illustrated map for the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. Waterproof and tear-resistant, it covers downtown Boston and the area’s 34 islands and shoreline parks. One side shows topographic details, ferry terminals and routes, boat ramps, beacons, historic sites, campgrounds, and trails. The flip side displays satellite imagery of the terrain and historic structures like Fort Andrews on Peddocks Island. The map sells for $11.95 at local book, marine, and sporting goods stores, the new Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion at the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway, and the visitors center on Georges Island, or through National Geographic.
