About Whipple Hill Conservation Area
Whipple Hill Conservation Area, 120 acres,3.9 miles of trails, is Lexington’s second largest conservation area and includes the highest point in town, the summit of Whipple Hill (375 feet). Trails wind across ledge outcrops, through mature stands of northern hard woods and white pines, and along Whipple Brook and Locke Pond. Many species of birds visit Whipple Hill, particularly during migration, and the vegetation is richly varied, including a few species that are considered to be uncommon to rare in the area.

Access is from Winchester Drive (with a small parking lot) and Summer Street in Lexington, and from Philemon Street and Skyline Drive in Arlington.
