Hiked on April 4, 2020. Only made it to the front of Old Manse. Easy to feel the weight of history here, though I recommend reading/listening to something about the Battle of Lexington and Concord before going to get the full story. Loved the stone wall near Old Manse.

Great walk, suitable for just about everybody. Interesting to learn about the history of the area too. Can never go wrong with the NPS!

This should be a must for all Americans. A walk through history surrounded by the beauty of nature in lovely Concord.

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.
