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.

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.
