Not much to look at but still a nice flat easy trail. The very end of the trail along the river and by the pond is very nice.

Nice little area, had some twists and hills here and there. Kind of buggy but not a big deal.

Nice little trail. Couldn't figure out if and how it contacted to other trails in the Charles River Reservation. Not too crowded. Most people were wearing masks.

Nice easy walk. Fair number of joggers with no masks, also kids at the playground halfway, some wearing masks and some not.

So many trees down today. Lots of scramble through the woods.

Nice walk with my dog this morning. It was mostly shaded, which we appreciated. We took the smaller side trails along the water whenever we could. At the last little "beach" area on our way out, we saw a big ol' snake sunning itself about 6 inches off the main path.

So glad we found this gem. It's a well-maintained, flat, and wide path that allows you access and views of the Charles. It's nice that they have right-of-way signs on one part of the trail during COVID. There's also decently ample parking at the start of the trailhead.

Nice easy walk/hike. Saw dogs on the trail. Very nice fall foliage and close to the water.

Went in mid-March so vegetation wasn't fully awake yet. Nice parts but scattered buildings in the distance.

First to Review

Trailhead was easy to find. Trail was very nice- very pretty. Mostly well groomed dirt, but some tree roots coming through. Trail is not continuous from this point (near Marriott) - it breaks up, then resumes, with some houses/offices in between. Although trailhead was easy to find, following the trail was not. I got lost in one of the neighborhoods.
