West Lexington Greenway
The West Lexington Greenway is a proposed system of hiking and off road biking trails of some five miles in length extending from Turning Mill Road in the north to Lincoln Street in the south with connections to several Town conservation areas and other open spaces. The West Lexington Greenway Master Plan is available for online viewing in the Town of Lexington Records Portal. It will be part of the ACROSS Lexington route system when completed.

New Trail Guide to Lexington’s Conservation Land Now Available
The Lexington Conservation Stewards have created a new Trail Guide to Lexington’s Conservation Land, which includes color trail maps along with descriptions and historical information for Lexington’s 25 walkable conservation areas. Covering nearly 30 miles of trails, it is an essential book for both veteran trail users and new explorers who’d like to discover the forests, fields, and wetlands in Lexington.
The Trail Guide to Lexington’s Conservation Land is available for a minimum donation of $10 from the Town of Lexington Community Development Office located in the Town Offices Building at 1625 Massachusetts Avenue. Proceeds benefit the Lexington Nature Trust Fund, which helps to care for our 1300 acres of public conservation land.
ACROSS Lexington(Accessing Conservation land, Recreation areas, Open space, Schools and Streets in Lexington) is a network of pedestrian and bicycle routes that links many parts of the Town of Lexington.
The Board of Selectmen have established the Rick Abrams ACROSS Lexington Fund to support the trail network by creating new directional and interpretive signage, electronic and/or print maps, and web/software development to incorporate current technologies. The mailing address for donations is:
