Reviewed 26 August 2017

Well used trail. Mostly level. A bit scary near construction. I wish I lived near here and this was my route to work as it is for so many. Great to see rowers and scullers and sailors on the river.

It's a great bike path with great scenery in a very bike friendly town. There are areas of construction that make the ride dicey for riding with kids. Plenty of stops along the way.

This is a lovely way to see the city. Walk, jog or bike along the Charles and view the crew teams, sail boats and Duck Tour boats.
There are many sculptures and memorials along the path. You can start from the Charles street T stations and walk as far as you'd like. Use a foot bridge to cross Storrow Drive into the Back Bay and get a snack.

The bike path and the walking path give you a great opportunity for relaxation or exercising while enjoying the beautiful views of the Charles River and the cities of Boston and Cambridge. Enjoy!

Beautiful path along Charles River with Boston skyline as a backdrop ! A great ride or walk, as you can start on one side and come back on the other side of the river to your starting point !!
