This is fun, either alone or as a couple or just as a family. Very pretty and really the heart of the historical trail....you can walk this, from concord to Lexington, many do on April 19! But it's also good for nice walks for us locals, all year long!

Great place to walk & jog. Make it as long as you want. We've been surprised by re-enactments of red coats & minutemen who, when they're not fighting & marching, will talk to visitors.

Use your imagination and feet to bring history alive the day British and American forces engaged for the "Battle of Lexington and Concord." If you walk the 5 plus mile trail, you'll not only retrace the route of the advancing and later in the day, retreating British Army, but also get a greater appreciation of what really happened there!

What it must have been like to be a Minuteman and go against the overwhelming numbers of British. How to use those rock walls to fight. Grateful for the freedom they won!

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!
