Put a SPRING in your step with one or more of these walks! No car necessary to reach these incredible natural areas within and around Lexington.
 
Walks are organized by Citizens for Lexington Conservation, in cooperation with Lexington Human Services. All walks will be on unpaved surfaces with the challenge of occasional roots and stones. Wear comfy shoes and dress for the weather. Optional: bring water, snack, camera, and walking stick, if you like! Transportation will be via Lexpress. Steady rain cancels. No rain dates are scheduled.

Registration Required. Free bus fare for registrants. Questions about bus schedules or routes? Check out www.Lexpress.us or call 781-698-4820
 
April 30 - Turning Mill/Willards Woods/Chiesa Farm/Parker Meadow: This 3.5 mile walk will traverse four Town Conservation areas ending at Depot Square via the Minuteman Bikeway. Historical highlights will include the foundations of an old mill site, an old stone fireplace lost in the woods, as well as the terraced remains of a former botanical garden, now grown into mature forest. The grades will be gentle with the opportunity to rest on the benches outside the Diamond Middle School mid-way through the walk.

4/30 details: Please join your guide, Keith Ohmart, in time to catch the 9:30 A1 Lexpress bus from the Depot in Lexington Center, or if you live along the A1 route, board at your local outbound stop. Keith will be holding a Lexpress Walk sign. We will get off the bus opposite Tidd Circle just before crossing Route 128. This walk will last approximately 2.5 hours, with participants returning to the Depot in Lexington Center.

 
May 14 - Shaker Glen/Lower Vine Brook: This 3.5 mile walk will wend its way through two of Lexington’s Conservation areas past a wide variety of habitats as well as the remains of a crushed stone processing operation. Bird watching along the way should be good with the variety of habitats and the peak of spring migration so bring binoculars if you wish.

5/14 Details: Please join your guide, Keith Ohmart, in time to catch the 9:30 B Lexpress bus from the Depot in Lexington Center, or board along the way. Keith will be holding a Lexpress Walk sign.  We will get off the bus at the corner of Woburn and Lowell Streets and return to the Depot in Lexington Center on foot. This walk will last approximately 2.5 hours.
