The short walk by the Old Manse and over the Old North Bridge has been one of my favorites for almost as long as I can remember, going back to when my family and I lived in the area for several years when I was young. I love the historical significance, as well as the personal memories it brings back for me. Fortunately, I have returned to visit a number of times over the years.

Living just a couple miles away in Lincoln many years ago, my family and I often took advantage of our proximity to Minute Man NHP and the many historical sites. I always enjoyed learning about the Revolutionary War while exploring this beautiful area.

This park has a beautiful easy trail fro running, walking or just nature sightseeing. It's never busy except for the day runners from Harvard or Boston College on the weekends. Today several of the historical homes were open to the public. Beautiful park. Dogs are allowed but please pick up after them. No trash barrels so bring back your trash home take care of our national treasures.

Beautiful, low humidity, bright blue sky kind of day. Plenty of folks enjoying the day. Saw quite a few nice birds; orioles and scarlet tanagers!

Excellent trail to walk (wish we had bikes with us!) Very well kept with interesting markers and signs along the trail to read. We visited in October so the leaves were beautiful colors!

I love biking on this trail, especially around the farmer's fields.

Do it once for the historic significance. Noisy because of Air Force base and close proximity to a busy road. Hoping to avoid too much tourist activity, so we choose a week day and off season - but it was busy with local use, a mix of bikes, runners and walkers - seldom a thank you when you moved aside to let bikes & runners pass.
So if you looking for a peaceful hike, this isn't it

Love this walk, especially in the fall. It's quite beautiful and I went here for the re-enactment of the Battle of Lexington.

A fantastic place to Kayak. If you own your own kayaks, there is a boat ramp on Lowell Road, just a half mile north-west of Concord center. There are also places that will rent kayaks to you and they will, of course, get you in the water as well.

If you've never kayaked before, try one of the rental places. If you enjoy it, and there's a good chance that you will, and think you might want to Kayak regularly, it might be worth investing in kayaks of your own if you have the means (can afford kayaks and roof racks, and can put kayaks on car or SUV and take them off as needed).
