Great historic road for walking or biking with your friends and family (or alone). It provides boards with historic details and pictures. The Visitors Center has a little museum and it also shows a short film (well done).

I would recommend visiting Minuteman Visitor Center to watch the film which helps the together the whole trail. Some many little details which make an interesting visit. The trail is easy walking. If you love American history this is a must visit.

No idea. As the prior response said it would be best to check with the National Park Service. Tip: apply insect repellent.
