The trail is 5 miles long, but if you have the time, it is worth walking or cycling along it. It is well marked and there are points of interest to look at along the way, with information boards, such as the place where Paul Revere was captured, or the bend in the road, called Bloody Angle, where the British...

Interesting from a historical point of view and beautiful from a Nature's point of view, this is a satisfying and enjoyable way to spend a few hours walking through lovely country side and follow the well marked land marks that describe what happened here in 1795.

This route is part of the Minute Man National Historical Park. After the fight at the North Bridge, the British Regulars retreated along this route starting at Meriam's Corner where the Patriots who were by now waiting for them open fire from every direction and from behind every tree and wall. The road was bright with British blood in minutes.... More

My 10-year-old and I walked the portion of the trail between the Minute Man Visitor's Center and Hartwell Tavern (using Liberty Ride trolley for the rest of the journey). It is a wonderful trail. I believe biking the 5 miles would be a perfect way to go. We traveled on a very hot day, and I am sure not in... More

We enjoyed biking this trail, but not for exercise. Quick way to get from house to house, to see the actual places that were there when the first shots were fired of the Revolutionary War. The Visitor Center media presentation was great and set the stage well for it. All of this was free! Great information and restoration of the... More

The Battle Trail takes you through the chronological history of the Revolutionary events that occurred there. Be sure to stop at the National Park Service visitor center first to get a map and watch the multi-media presentation, which will give you a better context of what you are going to see on the trail. There are many historical stops that... More

I took this tour on July 4th, 2016, so as an American I'm sure it had extra significance for me. That being said, this tour will fascinate and educate anyone that has even a passing interest in American history. The tour starts in downtown Boston near the Boston Common (our driver explained the provenance of the term "common"). From there... More
