Although it was a cold winter day it was worth dressing up for. This is such a good walk though part of the town and getting a great feel of the place!! Beautiful view of the Merrimac River and Port. I loved it.

We start by Cashman park where kids can play. Excited what the city has done with the water front. At many points you can drop off into town. But then continue on the rail trail.

Lovely 1.1 mile walk (one way) with sculptures by local artists along the way. Lots of entry points from the streets in Newburyport. Pretty walk that is quite easy.

Nice wide path through the town, but in the cover of trees and greenery. We saw tons of birds and there are lots of fun stops- including a brewery and ice cream!

I walk this trail frequently with my dogs and/or my grandchild. It is wide, clean, and busy on a sunny day. There are walkers, bikers, skaters, and skate boarders of all ages. You will enjoy it!
