"The boardwalk connecting the greenway to the minuteman trail is complete. There is a section of the greenway starting at Broadway in Somerville which is not yet completed. There is a cemetery there and I don't think there is a right of way to connect the 2 sides of the trail. You can connect the 2 sides by continuing along the Rt 16 bike path on the other side of the brook. This section of the bike path is also not completed but it's passable."
- You can also ride through the cemetery itself., entirely on paved paths There is an entrance on Broadway, and another at the end of Teel Street. The Teel Street entrance has a chain across it to keep cars out, so you will have to get off your bike and walk over or under the chain.
