I would have loved to walk the entire Battle trail and experience where the British soldiers walked as they fled back to Boston under fire from the colonial militia. Alas, I was with someone who can't walk that far so we ended up only walking a small portion of it near Hartwell Tavern and the Bloody Angle. It is a... More

Well maintained and signed linear National Park allows you to walk a portion the road the British walked in 1776. British soldiers ("Lobster Backs" because of their red coats) marched from Cambridge to North Bridge in Concord - about 20 miles - but you can get a sense of the history by walking or biking even a short stretch. Stand... More

When in the Boston area, take a short drive and visit this beautiful park. Lots of interesting history along the route.

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
