Follow this guide along the Charles River Bike Path all the way out to the Blue Heron Bike Path in Waltham and back.This guide completes a huge loop of the Charles River all the way to Waltham and back to the Cambridgeside Galleria. I've created a lot of POI's for the most interesting areas of the main Charles River Bike Path but have drawn an accurate track all the way out to Waltham and back if you would like to go that far. You will make a loop around the Mt. Feake Cemetery and head back on the opposite side of the river for different views. Beyond this the Charles River piddles out into a swampy area then a small river so it's not worth going further.

A great escape from the city along the Charles when you get passed the Brighton area! Would recommend going in the morning if biking the loop to avoid walkers as best as possible!

Nice if you need a path to run long distance

Lovely trail, love the fact that it’s a loop, went the whole way, but the cemetery loop was closed today. Fun ride!

if you are biking on the part of the trail near the hatch she'll do it in the morning because it can get really crowded and people are not friendly

Beautiful ride under trees and along the river. The day I rode my bicycle weather was perfect.
