Charles River Esplanade Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For commuters and recreational cyclists alike, the paved path along the banks of the Charles River is a convenient means of navigating the city. A favorite among runners, cyclists, and picnickers on both sides of the river, the corridor of greenway that lines the Charles offers a tree-lined respite from urban hustle.

This ride offers glimpses of historic Cambridge, incredible views of downtown Boston, and a sense for the vastly different atmosphere that lies just across the river."
