I have walked Battle Road twice and it never fails to impress. If you are looking for a walk that can last 20 minutes to 6 hours with awesome history thrown in- this is it. The nature is beautiful and you can walk or bike it with friends or alone without worry. I encourage you to make sure you are passing the Hartwell Tavern while the Minuteman demonstration happens because you can tour inside for free. It's also fun to watch the musket drills and demonstrations. There is nowhere to rent bikes onsite, but if you are driving, you can rent some in downtown Lexington. The Liberty Ride trolly stops at different locations which might be a good solution to not backtracking to your car. I walked from the visitor center to Meriam's Corner and it was just under 3 hours. Someone should rent bikes on site. They could.clean up!
Continue by trolly or car to the Old North Bridge and enjoy a picnic on their beautiful grounds that overlook the bridge. Great wedding spot if they allow it.
You can continue your historical journey by going to Lexington Green (follow MA-2A) which can end or begin your journey.
Between battle road and the bridge is Concord Center with historical houses by famous as authors, museums and charming eateries. Everyone seems to walk in this town which means they make it manageable.
This is a must for anyone who appreciates what it took to secure our freedom as well as the sacrifices of everyone engaged in battle.
