What an incredible thing it is to walk along a road where people had done battle and died for their cause. The trail is a lovely, easy walk and if you let your imagination go you can see where the men would have done battle and reflect on the enormity of it.

If you ever have the the chance, please consider stopping awhile to take in the hallowed ground between Lexington and Concord that (literally) changed the world. Element and Aloft could not be more ideally situated as overnight stays -- I highly recommend them, especially if you can snag a room at a seasonal bargain. Each is only minutes from the... More

From Rte 128 to the outskirts of Concord, this is an excellent--and popular--ride about 5 miles in length. There are parking areas at periodic intervals, a few with toilets and drinking fountains. Similarly, you'll find a handful of period houses and taverns along the way, staffed by Park Service guides during busy times. The surface is not paved but most... More

This makes for such a great day. It is so awesome to get to see all of this history while being able to exercise and be outdoors! Our whole family had a good time! I would definitely recommend this for everyone!

Glad we stopped by here today. Wish we had gotten there earlier. The welcome center was already closed but we t talking to some locals who shared lots of great information with us. It was a very nice walk with a ton of history. Perfect for my older who is 11. The baby enjoyed it too! Hope to get back... More

Did lots of stopping to walk and see sights though pretty windy outside but kids still enjoyed reading and learning the information written on the trail.

I biked this trail with my 10 year old son. It is a must!! Great way to see the historical places and learn information from the markers along the trail. Bring water/snacks and just take your time. The musket demonstration at Hartwell Tavern was a great break and my son really enjoyed it. A beautiful train and easy bike ride.

Walk out of the Minuteman Park visitor center and the historic 5 mile "Battle Road" beckons. I walked the historic road (which is actually a well worn path) each night and on one occasion went about 4 miles out and 4 miles back to the parking lot at the visitor center). You will encounter, joggers, bikers, families, and history buffs... More

While it was a privilege to walk on such an important trail, because I left our vehicle at one of the NPS's visitors center, I left my family to go back and get it. Because I wasn't closely paying attention, even though I stayed on the trail, I got lost. My advice: closely watch the signs and don't get too... More

We drove the road and stopped at sites along the way. It would be nice to bicycle, though, if you have the time. The road is busy, not self contained. The Visitor Center is excellent and the rangers are knowledgable. The usual souvenirs are available.
