Charles River Esplanade

Charity

The Esplanade Association is a 20-year-old non-profit organization that works to revitalize and enhance the Charles River Esplanade, sustain its natural green space, and build community in the park by providing educational, cultural, and recreational programs for everyone. Working in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Esplanade Association is dedicated to improving the experiences of the millions of visitors who enjoy Boston’s iconic riverside park.

The Museum of Science route

Intermediate routes (3 to 6 miles)

This route sticks to the river the whole way, leaving the riverside paths only to cross the river on the Charles River Dam Bridge, Route 28, at the halfway point and the BU Bridge towards the end. In addition to breathtaking views of the city, Mooney says this route gives runners the option of running on asphalt bike paths, sand, or dirt.

The Harvard route

Intermediate routes (3 to 6 miles)

This is an abridged version of a longer trek coming up later on this list (‚ÄúLonger routes‚ÄĚ). It takes you over the BU Bridge to Cambridge, turns around at Harvard, and returns via the Anderson Memorial Bridge and Comm Ave. Quigley says this route is among the best for West Campus residents, as it meanders through Allston, with plenty of opportunities to either shorten or lengthen your run.

The MIT Bridge route

Short routes (4 miles or less)

This route winds along the Esplanade and both sides of the Charles River and crosses the Longfellow and BU Bridges, providing dazzling views along the riverbank throughout. Quigley says this route can be expanded north into Cambridge and around MIT to put some extra distance on the loop.
