The trail can be undertaken in a single trip or broken into "bite sized" chunks. The day we did it was very warn and sunny so we did all the outside bits and left the visits to the State House, the Old State House etc for a day when the weather was not so good.
We chose to undertake the walk unguided using the very useful guide book available from the Tourist Office next to the Old State House ($6.95). Alternatively you can join on of the guided walks starting at the Tourist Information Office on Boston Common.
The trail takes as long as you want it to. If, like me, you like looking around graveyards then leave plenty of time as there are several on the trail well worth a good look.
All in all a good day out at very little cost
