As noted by others, it is much more interesting if you visit the Minuteman Visitor Center first and view the 1/2 hour multimedia presentation first. It is shown every half hour and is engaging and done very well. I did this and made the last...More

As you walk down this trail, you get a sense of the history. Seeing places I only read about bring it alive. Wonderful visit, especially in the fall.
