Minuteman Bikeway Professional Reviews and Guides
"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."

"Arguably the most popular bike path in the Commonwealth (and one of the most traveled in the country), the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway connects Cambridge to the historic towns just beyond Greater Boston, including Arlington, Lexington, and Bedford. This paved rail-trail makes for a smooth, peaceful ride outside the city along a corridor shaded by trees and lined with the remnants of stone fences that date back to the origins of our country."
