Much better as a biking or jogging path than hiking. Flat packed dirt. Busy during peak fitness times. Good option for runners who want a long flat route with minimal road crossings.

The trail itself is nice, though the last portion cuts through neighborhoods, which is weird.

The best parts are the side trails through the woods and a swamp walk.

Nice, not very secluded. I like feeling like I’m really in the woods when I hike. Last stretch of the trail was walking through neighborhoods which I really didn’t enjoy.

Gravel & dirt path. Relatively flat but there was a section that was flooded. No parking at the starting point.

If you have kids, this is an absolute blessing in the area. Walked it many times when my oldest was small. They did a great job cleaning the old lead mill up too. Not a rigorous walk, but fantastic for a rail trail.

Awesome. 6 miles of trails from Hobart street Damvers to topsfield before roads get a little more rough

Not an exciting walk, however, I think if I would have had more time to explore I could have rated higher. I stayed on the main path but saw many trails leading into the woods. Next time!! Super easy walk!
