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.

We used a part of this system on our bike tour of Boston. It gets you out of the busy car traffic and amongst some solitude. Watch out for oncoming hikers and bikers and ducks!
