Very nice ride or walk along the Charles river. there is almost always someone out crewing on the river and lots of folks just sitting around.

The Charles River Bike Path runs along the scenic river edge and is also good for jogging. You can see historic Harvard and MIT campus buildings as well as Boston's skyline. Great green space and views. Parking is present but challenging to find sometimes.

From the hotel, on their free bicycles, a very pleasant trip to Harvard for a walk around. Good surface, safe and separated from traffic.

I braved the windy winter to walk and jog on the path. Post the snow days in late March, the Charles was so charming, it was a fantastic experience to walk along and view the skyline of Boston.

Our October visit included beautiful, warm and sunny weather. After our Fenway Park tour we walked down to the River Path and took it back to the Public Gardens. A nice wide path with fabulous river views. Crowded with bikes, strollers, walkers, skaters, etc... really...More

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.
