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

We started our visit at the Center which is well-staffed with knowledgeable Park Rangers and has a 30 minute video with special effects to take you back to 1776. I learned so much during that visit. It really needs to be your first stop before you follow the Battle Road to Concord. Hearing how the Colonists fighting for the Militia... More

A nice walk on a well-maintained trail that meanders between home subdivisions on one side and a busy highway on the other. Even so, it doesn’t take much to imagine what the British troops may have experienced as they made their way first to Concord and then in bloody retreat back to Boston. Although there are pull outs and parking... More

Every time I take visitors on this walk, part or all of it, I hear the same comment: "Do you know how lucky you are to live near this?" The answer is "Yes, I do." Perhaps one of the biggest bonuses of living in Concord is the availability of this trail.

this is a VERY long trail! The portion closest to the visitor center is quite remarkable. We were filming for a documentary and the staff was wonderful. This is a great place to walk and contemplate history.
