Enjoyed this hike was some tough parts very steep hills. Had my dogs with me they enjoyed it and there is a river most of the way up you can get access to for the dogs. There is a very beautiful waterfall near the big wooden brigde to the right you can look from the top of it if you follow the stream or you can walk down threw the woods ans get to the bottom! Very pretty though worth the hike!!!

Great hike with the dogs! It does get pretty muddy in the spring, make sure to bring the appropriate shoe wear. Pretty view at the top of the hill.

Minute Man National Historical Park - Battle Road Trail

We walked the 5-mile Battle Road today, starting at the Visitor's Center (off I-95 in Lexington) toward Concord. We are preparing for a longer hike this summer and wanted a nice practice hike. Indeed it is pretty, natural, relatively flat/level, and turns through beautiful old farms, Revolutionary-era homes and roads that once saw the early battles in the fight for this country. The only difficulty was the remaining snow and ice that still covered large portions of the trail. It is early April, though, and we should have remembered our crampons for increased sure-footedness. Also, gloves and warm hats would have helped. A good hike, though, and we will return many times in the future. At the end of the trail near Concord, we decided to walk into town for lunch (another mile), and found a "casual American bistro" Helen's Restaurant, 17 Main St. Great!! So many menu choices and all good, well-presented, and a great end of our hike. This is not a new area for us, but a new way of experiencing it. Often in summers past, we have kayaked on the Concord River, so it was nice to see this area from the ground this time! Altogether, a wonderful day. We recommend it!
