The Minuteman Bikeway has it all. It’s close to Boston, it’s historic, it’s located in a lush and beautiful area, and it’s great for families. Its historical significance is of particular note. The trail closely approximates the route Paul Revere took on his famous ride in 1775, announcing the incursion by British forces and heralding the beginning of the American Revolution. Surface: Asphalt. Location: Middlesex County.

Nice to walk, bike or rollerskate on relatively level paved path. It can be crowded at times esp. in Arlinggton sections. The views change from multiple ball parks to excellent vistas of Arlingto Great Meadow.

Too many people, scenery is ok at best. I've seen quite a few broken bottles. Area near Alewife T station is not very safe at nigt.

Danger! Too many people on cell phones and with ear buds. Nice scenery, but it's safer to ride on the roads.

Good trail. Pretty scenic. Lots of informational signage along the way. Easy ride. A few stops along the way for rest/refreshments. Nice stop at the Lexington Visitor Center.
