The Burlington Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a guided Mountain Bike Ride in the Landlocked Forest on Saturday, June 9, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. for youths and adults. The ride is free to Burlington residents ($10 for non-residents). 
Pre-registration is required.

The summer brochure and registration page can be accessed from the department website:


The ride will be led by the New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA) and will meet at the Estabrook School at 77 Grove Street in Lexington. The terrain is rocky, so please be sure to bring a mountain bike. Beginners are welcome!


We are super excited to announce that on January 23, 2017 Burlington Town Meeting voted to change the zoning on Burlington's Landlocked Forest to Open Space! 92 in favor of the rezoning to open space and 11 opposed - a huge victory!!! Thank you so much to EVERYONE who has helped and continues to help preserve this 250 acre forest!
