Length: 2.5 mi • Est. 1 h 2 m
This is a nice paved walk around the 155-acre Fresh Pond Reservoir. There is one main path around the pond with options for short side trails. There are three main entrances at Alewife Brook, The Cambridge Water Works, and Glacken Field but you need to be a Cambridge resident to park here. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and typically at least six feet wide. The estimated grade is mostly gentle (all 5% or less) so most wheelchair/mobility equipment and stroller users will likely be able to navigate the trail.Show more
