Freedom Trail

A 2.5-mile long walk that winds through downtown Boston and Charlestown, the Freedom Trail marks 16 sites of historic importance through Boston.

Starting at Boston Common, the Trail goes through downtown, up into Boston’s North End, crossing the Charles River into Charlestown and ends at the Bunker Hill Monument. While the Trail is designed as pedestrian way finding along city sidewalks, you can still use Bluebikes to access most of the historical sites along the way, with plenty of locations to start and stop your tour.

Closest Bluebikes stations:

  • Tremont St at West St

  • Boston City Hall - 28 State St

  • Boston Public Market

  • Warren St at Chelsea St
