This encompasses most of the Revolutionary War sites around Concord. I spent some time on the trails and found some battle sites I had never heard of.

We only wish we had set aside a couple more days here. Such history! You will not be disappointed in the park. Miles of walk/riding paths. Very informative self guided sites.
