Bradley A. on Charles River Southwest Corridor Trail
The trail was a very nice walk on a sunny day in the winter with the temperature in the 40s F. The way is paved throughout the entire route. I enjoyed my time outdoors doing the whole trail.
This can be infinitely varied. Best thing to do is lengthen it. Extend your walk downstream to cross at the dam and upstream to cross at the BU bridge. Downstream there is a small embayment just northwest of the dam that is delightful. Crossing upstream at the BU bridge allows one to enjoy even more of the embankment on the Boston side.
