I would walk and run on this path to see the city. Easy to find. Well lit at night. Lots of people using the path at pretty much all hours, so it feels very safe. And bikers seem to be kind to pedestrians.

The bike path is beautiful, wonderful views of Boston and very pleasant place. We did it on foot as we didn’t rent a bike... Took longer but worth every minute.

The new path along the Cambridge side of the bike path is wonderful. I run the path at lunch and it's an uplifting workout!

Turns out you can walk or ride from the far end of Boston or Cambridge to Waltham, and that's what we did: walked from Waltham. It's clean and safe the whole way.
