Here are five scenic paths to run along, for those training for the Boston Marathon to newbie runners and all the Bostonians in between.
Running along the Muddy River — yes, that’s its actual name — this Emerald Necklace Conservancy park features historic stone bridges and gazebos + lots of shady trees on the 1.1 mile path.
📍Chestnut Hill Reservoir, Brighton
The 1.5 mile gravel path features views of Boston College and the city skyline + plenty of benches for when you need a breather.
📍East Boston Greenway Connector, East Boston
Visit this paved path to pass by neighborhood landmarks like Bremen Street Park and Constitution Beach on a 3.3 mile run.
Bonus: Each of these paths is accessible along the MBTA.
