Despite the many bike travelers on this trail, some inconsiderate, this is a very nice trail to Boston and some other desirable destinations. The trail is shady and has many stops along the way for eating and sightseeing. You can also access other trails along the way to make it longer.

Depending on how you travel along the Minuteman, it can be pleasant or hectic. It's a pleasure to walk or jog when the bike riders are being considerate. However, beware of bicyclists who care more about speeding along than sharing the trail!

This long narrow park/trail is the original route used by the British to get to Concord Bridge. It is also the route used to return. It was during this return journey the column was continuously under attack by individuals and elements of the colonial militia. While there are several spots at which you can stop to get on the trail.... More

A flat easy ride that is mostly paved. We started at the beginning of the trail and rode all the way to Concord and back, stopping for lunch in Lexington. As for bike rental, we paid $25/bike/per day from The Bike Exchange at Porter Square (2067 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02140, 617.864.1300). Just a heads-up: while the bikes were fine... More

I love biking the minuteman trail. It's about 11 miles long and Lexington is along the way which is a very bike friendly town if you need to stop for a break. The path is paved, very calm, in a wooded area and pretty flat. This is great for families, kids, roller blading, etc... There's a bike shop on the... More

The path around Arlington is really gorgeous and you can stop to see spy pond where they have places to sit and an outdoor park for... More

This trail winds its way from boston out to bedford. All hard top. Nice bike ride, but watch out for the bike commuters...they dont stop for nobody! But the trail is a mix of families with strollers, commuters, roller bladers and walkers. A little known fact is if you keep going past the end of the trail in Bedford down... More

If you have a beautiful day and want to go for a lovely walk in the woods, this is for you. The walk is pleasant and along the way you will learn about the events leading up to the American Revolutionary War. One thing I appreciate the most, is that they have marked the spots where British soldiers were killed.... More

The minuteman trail is full of history for everyone. We - non Americans - loved the visitor centre and its 25 minute 3 dimensional film that explained very well what happened on April 19. The trail itself is beautiful.
