I've been to Mystic river reservation twice during my stay in Boston: once for a morning hike, and another time in the evening for sunset. The reservation is amazing, can't believe such beauty exists so close to our apartment (we stayed in Somerville), fantastic trails, beautiful views of the river, within just 5 minutes drive.

2+ miles of paved walking paths that uses two bridges over the Mystic to make a loop.

There's a perfect cycling route from Somerville or Medford, right along the river, with plenty of distractions along the way,... 更多
