I agree with prior review that this trail should be listed as easy, not moderate. It is fully paved and mostly flat. That said, it is a great place for a jog or family biking, or dog walking.

Well-maintained paved trail with some nice beautiful wetland areas. Not too busy. I use it for roller cross-country skiing during the warm months and it’s perfect!

This is a fun place to run. Me and the wife love to run that from the caboose as a starting point. Very busy on sunny weekends with bikes, so be careful.

Just a gorgeous trail. Scenic normally on the quiet side, benches to rest if you need to, lots of wildlife!

Moderate? It's a nicely paved, flat rail trail. I prefer this trail over the connected Derry Rail Trail, as Derry is narrower and punctuated by 3-4 roads, two of which are frequently traveled. Windham has a much nicer surface, and better water features for viewing. We usually cut it a little short by starting from the "depot" parking lot which usually has spaces. Good for snowshoeing too until the snowmobilers get to it.

Nice paved level path with benches along the way if someone needs a rest. A lot of bicyclist to look out for but they were polite. Only downfall is there is t much to look at other than trees.

This trail is good for biking... road, hybrid or mountain tires. I started in Salem at Cycles Etc. The trail starts there as hard packed gravel for about 8/10 of a mile then it's all paved. It connects to the Derry Trail for a total of 8 miles one way. It's a nice Fall foliage ride and it wasn't crowded for a Sunday Columbus Day weekend. I would do this again for a quick ride and only a little over an hour away from Boston.
