“Beautiful trail”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

It's pristine, beautiful and minimally constructed so it doesn't distract from nature. Most dog owners take car of their pets' trash and the grounds are well-maintained. The only pitfall is the many areas of seclusion available, which does entice the local teens during evening and night hours. We have caught several groups a few times leaving the woods while still smoking, the unmistakable scent of pot filling the air.

“Easy walk”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Easy walking on a flat surface. You feel that you are in the woods, but a main road is very near by in case of emergency. A few benches to rest, could use more.

“Biking, walking, running”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Independence greenway is a pleasant path. You can get on or off at various areas where parking is available. stay on path, and in daytime only if walking dogs just watch for tics in summer

“New Green Trail...”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Just took the dog for a walk down the Independence Greenway Rail Trail today--it's really convenient and takes you through a more peaceful part of town. I'm glad the city of Peabody invested so much into this trail. Definitely surprised there weren't more families out today riding their bikes! I just hope that the city extends the trail to cross under I-95/rt-1 so users don't have to get onto Lowell Rd. anymore.

“A welcome pleasure for the North Shore (Peabody) area.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The Greenway starts just 1/2 mile from my house and I have enjoyed it many times. The scenery is nice and its well maintained. Just beware of the coyotes in the fall. they won't bother you but are around. The trail is much shorter than the Lexington Minuteman trail, but its also not as heavily used and is great for kids, shorter jogs and general walking. If you get thirsty, pop into Hannafords super market mid way for a beverage.
