Before hiking the Charles River Link, please read the trail guide for information about parking, trail usage restrictions, distances and stops for scenic attractions. Two online versions of the trail guide are available - normal and printable booklet. Also, see our Google Map for trail route, trailheads, parking, and directions.
Trail Notice: Due to pipeline work, the trail is closed along the Charles River for 100 yards north of the Crosstown Trail intersection. Detour signs direct trail users to loop around the work site via Walnut Street.
*Revision 6: New location for renovated Babson World Globe and minor text updates from rev5. ** For a compact booklet, use landscape, two-sided printing (if manual, no rotation) on 8.5"x11" paper. Fold in half and staple together along the fold.
GPS data was collected for the Charles River Link and the line and point shapefile describes the trail route.
