“That's it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

That's it. Because it was a long time, I cannot remember the name. If I did not remember wrong, it is the river in front of MIT. It is a perfect place to have your leisure time. I enjoyed the scenery of Boston from Cambridge.
Visiting date was in July 2009.

“YEA time to ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Take this trail and any of the hundreds across New England. It is totally worth the day. Though I would strongly recommend going on a weekday (weekends are very crowded). And bring water, some cash and an idea of how far you have gone (you are going to need to go back: )

“nice concept - bad execution”

If you don't mind riding a bike on root cracked asphalt steps away from a 4 land road its great. Lots of potential but terrible execution. Scenic it is not.

“Work out, think or both”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Beautiful views, ample places to rest and many opportunities to get on and off if you need to refuel at a local cafe. Just be advised that it can get crowded on sunny weekends, with joggers, skaters, bicyclists and pedestrians competing for space.

“Good for walkers too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I liked this, even in the rain. Stroller and child friendly. Memorial Drive on the Cambridge side near Harvard is closed on Sundays, which is nice.
