The Northern Canal Walkway is a half-mile stretch of easy hiking along the Merrimack River. The trail offers views of the river and adjacent canal and can be accessed from May 15 to October 15. The trail is moderately used and kid and dog friendly. The walkway closes when water levels are too high, so it is advisable to contact the National Park station prior to planning a trip.
