Part of the Minute Man National Historical Park, this is a great trail to walk. It is about 5 miles one way, but so worth it if you can make the complete journey. There are parking spots on the main road that runs parallel to the Battle Trail so you can see the highlights of the trail. I highly recommend... More

This walk was a great way to understand the battle that was fought here. If you are not able to walk far, you can drive along the street that parallels it, and stop at the major attraction points.

I would have loved to walk the entire Battle trail and experience where the British soldiers walked as they fled back to Boston under fire from the colonial militia. Alas, I was with someone who can't walk that far so we ended up only walking a small portion of it near Hartwell Tavern and the Bloody Angle. It is a... More

Well maintained and signed linear National Park allows you to walk a portion the road the British walked in 1776. British soldiers ("Lobster Backs" because of their red coats) marched from Cambridge to North Bridge in Concord - about 20 miles - but you can get a sense of the history by walking or biking even a short stretch. Stand... More

The trail is 5 miles long, but if you have the time, it is worth walking or cycling along it. It is well marked and there are points of interest to look at along the way, with information boards, such as the place where Paul Revere was captured, or the bend in the road, called Bloody Angle, where the British...

Interesting from a historical point of view and beautiful from a Nature's point of view, this is a satisfying and enjoyable way to spend a few hours walking through lovely country side and follow the well marked land marks that describe what happened here in 1795.

This route is part of the Minute Man National Historical Park. After the fight at the North Bridge, the British Regulars retreated along this route starting at Meriam's Corner where the Patriots who were by now waiting for them open fire from every direction and from behind every tree and wall.
