This is a cool trail. I enjoy the exercise and historical information of this area. By chance there was one time when the there was a revival of one of the many battles the Minutemen fought one day when I was riding this spring. If you enjoy history it is fun to stop in Lexington center where this is a store with a lot of historical items.
But back to exercise . . . it is a very good trail. It is paved, very level and is used by many young, experienced bikers, walkers and rollerbladders. If you're looking for a lonely trail with no traffic, this isn't the one. If you're looking for a popular trail with historical landmarks and bikers, walkers and rollerbladders with polite road etiquette, this is a great trail to learn and enjoy.

This is a great starter trail. I say starter because it is only 4 miles yet it is very a very beautiful and relaxing ride.
There are benches and various areas to sit and take a break. There are also many streams and ponds along the trail which helps make it a very beautiful ride. I wish I could envision the time when the train ran this route because it seems so peaceful.
