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.
