In our concretized, urban landscape, the Landlocked Forest of Burlington is an oasis of forest, wildlife, and natural beauty. A treasure in its own right, and enjoyed by local hikers, bicyclists,and bird watchers, it is also part of our environmental legacy, a piece of old New England to be preserved, nurtured, and bequeathed to our grandchildren.

The 250 acres of land is name the “Landlocked Forest” because of its location between Routes 62, 3, and 128 in Burlington, and conservation land in Bedford and Lexington.  Bulrington residents and others may access it from the parking lot on Turning Mill Road  in Lexington.  The property currently offers 13 miles of trails perfect for walking, trail running, bicycling, dog walking, snow shoeing, and cross-country skiing.
