This is a former right of way rail trail. It extends from Bedford, MA to Cambridge, MA. You will pass by Sly Pond and other historical parks and monuments on the way. It is all paved, level path. It is a very popular path so you will see others walking/running.

Lots of traffic most of the time, but wide lanes make it fairly easy to pass slower users. Many parks and nature observation areas to enjoy along the main trail. Long, gentle grades; beautiful scenery; great people-watching; ideal for commuters.

Flat and shady, this trail is a nice ride! There are lots of pedestrians and other bikers, but most people are friendly, courteous and will share the path with no problem. There is a bike shop that has a door open to the path if you need to make a repair. There are lots of restaurants and shops along the way to get a bite to eat or a drink. There is a very short (literally crossing one block plus crossing a busy street with a light) part of the path that is not restricted - other than that, it is restricted to recreational use.
