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.

Awesome time with family, boys learning how to be minute men and shoot/hold a musket at the Hartwell Tavern. NPS does an awesome job!

the Battle Road Trail is both interesting and beautiful. I wish that I had dedicated more time to it, and I also wish that it was set aside purely for those who wanted to see the Revolutionary locations, rather than a road for locals to speed along as rapidly as possible. There are a lot of places to stop, parking... More

I was at a hotel nearby July 4th 2014 and because of the intense rain, I had nothing else planned and dressed up for a short run around 6PM. After a short trip around the corner, I stumbled upon the first sign marked "Battle Road Trail". It turned out to be a bit longer than I had planned (approximately 18km)... More

Biked the Battle Road Trail this weekend and really enjoyed it. Any average cyclist with the correct bike can do this. There are a few soft sandy parts and inclines/declines but overall the trail is hard compact dirt or crushed gravel. You will be biking through history which is very unique and can stop along the way at the interpretive... More

At the Minuteman Visitor Center, they show a ~15-20 min video that is great to tell you the history of Paul Revere's ride, the "Shot Heard Round the World," and so on. We loved being able to walk down the dirt road where so much history happened. There are several signs along the way as well that let you know... More

Well-signed, great for walking or bicycling on the packed dirt road. Combine this with a visit to the Minute Man Visitor Center for a well-done multimedia production.
