Short walk (1.3 miles if you do both trails). Took the kids and husband who are all history buffs. We loved it. Easy trail. We didn't get to check out the visitor center or restrooms since they are closed because of COVID. Lots of posts with historic information.

Short, easy loop on asphalt, boardwalk, and recycled rubber trail around the site of an early Patriot Revolutionary War victory. Good historical interpretation, and nice reconstructed bridge. Worth an hour or so if you are in the area.

Jason at the visitor center was a great guide ~ provided a lot of historical information on the events that took place! The trail is super easy to walk, full of informative posters, lovely monuments, and beautiful scenery. There is also a picnic area for those who want to bring something to eat that was very peaceful and quiet. The bathrooms were nice and clean. This is a great place to visit and frequent!

priceless historical value, veeery well conserved, great visitors center, even real xviii century Cannon can be seen. Very recreative, good for beginners, kids, pets, but definitely not for exercicing.

An easy but informative walk around America's lesser known battlefields. Interesting and on an improved rubber trail.

Nice and quite walk around the battlefield. The place was almost completely deserted, and my friend and I had most of it to ourselves for the first half of the walk. The history was great, and I think I even managed to catch a ghost in a picture.
