Sunday Oct 7, 2-4 pm – Lower Vine Brook Exploration

If you have found the trail system in the Lower Vine Brook Conservation property confusing in the past and have not discovered the new colored arrow trail markers, this is your chance to reacquaint yourself with this property. Meet your guide at the trail entrance on the Fairfield Drive cul-de-sac between 9 and 15 Fairfield Drive.Walk Leader: Keith Ohmart (kohmart@verizon.net)

Sunday Oct 14, 2-4 pm – New ACROSS Lexington Route J Introductory Walk

Be the first to walk ACROSS Lexington’s newest route. Route J links the Minuteman Bikeway with one of Lexington’s lesser-known Conservation properties, Liberty Heights. The route is steep in parts but the footing underneath is either on paved surfaces or level, smooth walking trails. Meet at the Waldorf School parking lot.Walk Leader: Eileen Entin (eileenhome@gmail.com)

Sunday Oct 21, 2-4:30 pm – Whipple Hill to Wright-Locke Farm

Perhaps you were unaware that Lexington’s Whipple Hill Conservation property directly abuts Winchester’s Wright-Locke Farm property. This walk will explore the trails connecting these two open space properties with the added bonus of enjoying some late fall foliage color. Meet at the entrance to the Whipple Hill property at the crest of Lexington’s Winchester Drive opposite Berkshire Street, which is on the left. Park on Berkshire Street due to limited parking at the trail entrance and walk across Winchester Drive to the entrance.
