Sunday afternoon hiking with the kids. It was beautiful and perfect to bring a stroller because the path is large and easy to get around. Lots of historical significance and well posted signs. Love going here

Still muddy in early April. A few nice features, like historic houses and mildly informational signs. Area isn't terribly interesting; ok to just do part of the trail to get the full flavor.

Great historic trail. Learned a lot about the Revolutionary War. Very family friendly and dog friendly. The trail states it's 9.1 miles but that time is round trip. the actual trail is only under 5 miles one way.

Pet friendly easy trail with plenty of history sites and quite long. Great workout if you blast straight through it.

Great ride. Left from the Bedford Rail Depot. Reformatory Branch trail to Battle Road to Minute Man Commuter Rail Trail. The National Historic Park offers free mini history tours and has a great 25 minute presentation in the visitors center. Highly recommend it. Went on the Parker's Revenge tour which was interesting and informative.

Peaceful and educational trail along trails that are easy and beautiful to hike. In the summer, wildflowers and blackberries are plentiful. The park rangers are friendly and always willing to give more info on the historical sites. Don't miss nearby (about 5 minutes away) Authors Ridge in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery where the graves of Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Nathaniel Hawthorn are located.

A wonderful history lesson surrounded by the beauty of Concord. Where it all began. Very sentimental. It was an honor to walk in the steps of the minute men and I enjoyed all of the detailed signs pointing out everything. Lovely bridge with birds landing and making for a great picture by the lake. Enjoyable! Not difficult at all. Nice flat surfaces mostly.

Beautiful trail. It was moderately busy but it is to be expected at the start of a holiday weekend. Loved being surrounded by all the history.
