Accessing Conservation land, Recreation areas, Open space, Schools and Streets in Lexington
ACROSS Lexington, a project of the Greenways Corridor Committee, is a network of marked trails and paths for walkers, runners and trail bikers. 8 routes (labelled A - H) — totaling over 28 miles — have been completed to date. Eventually, the trail system will span 40 miles.
The routes use existing public ways to connect the town center with various historic sites, schools and conservation areas. Residents and visitors will gain enjoyment and fitness as they travel around town without a car.
Rick Abrams (1956-2014), a founding member of the Greenways Corridor Committee, was an enthusiastic and dedicated advocate of ACROSS Lexington and the health benefits of walking.

The ACROSS Lexington trails loop through a number of conservation areas, most of which have their own networks of trails. The Trail Guide to Lexington’s Conservation Land includes color trail maps for Lexington’s 26 walkable conservation areas.
