Conservation Lands & Trails

The Conservation Commission owns and maintains approximately 2,000 acres of protected land throughout Weston that is open to the public for passive recreation. Approximately 90 miles of trails, fire roads, and hilltop outlooks have been maintained for public use and enjoyment with most of the funding provided by the Weston Forest & Trail Association. A color map showing all town trails can be purchased from the Conservation Department in Town Hall for $10.

History

The history and ecology of the conservation areas are described by Professor Elmer E. Jones in his book Walks on Weston Conservation Land. It is available for purchase through Weston Forest & Trail or at the Conservation Office in Town Hall. The price is $15 and helps cover the cost of printing and distribution.
