These people have just completed walking the newer "B" route.
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.
ACROSS Lexington routes use various existing public ways, including conservation land trails and sidewalks. Routes connect the center of town with various locations in the town including historic sites, schools and conservation areas. Routes are accessible by foot or bicycle.
Creating such a network of marked routes is intended to encourage greater utilization of Lexington’s open-space resources for passive recreation. Residents and visitors alike will find enjoyment, exercise and an incentive to travel about town without a car.
ACROSS Lexington routes will also connect users to open space resources in neighboring towns via existing trails such as the Western Greenway Trail and the Battle Road Trail in the Minute Man National Historical Park.
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:
