My wife & I love to walk, to see the wildlife, flora and fauna. This is a park that spans many acres and multiple options for walking hill & dale. I remember the day we met up with someone who was hunting for mushrooms. He said he had a thriving business selling them to local restaurants. It was just another... More

Truly one of the jewels of the state park system. The park is easily accessible off of Interstate 95 in Newburyport. There is plenty of parking and modern facilities. The park is part of a former estate and features multiple trails thru fields, wooded areas, gardens and abuts the Merrimac river. Great for horse back riding, walking, running and cross... More

While traveling to an event in Newburyport, we came across the signage for this park and decided to "check it out." It is sprawling and welcoming. We visited in spring and there were folks in the pastures (farm also located here with tours available) having lunch, walking the trails and horse's being unloaded from their travel trailers for a trip...

Moseley Park is a delightful way to spend an afternoon walking through the Woodland Flora and Fauna of Newburyport. The paths leads you down to small gardens open fields as well as to the upper part of the Merrimack River. Stop first at the visitor center and pick up brochure with the history of the park and the many trails.... More

Maudslay is Beautiful in any season. It is a special place for a walk. If you just want a short walk head through the gardens and down to the river. If you're up for the biggest loop it's about 5 miles. The view of the river at the old house site is breath taking. If you can, visit in early... More

This DCR location rocks! The different paths lead you on an enchanting walk with great views and interesting old buildings along the way. It's easy to get lost in the beauty here. There are so many different paths to take, all worth the walk. The state park is kept clean and is never over busy, even in the summer. Dog... More

Maudsley State park exists thanks to the efforts of former governor Michael Dukakis, who saved it from real estate development. It is 500 acres of woods, meadows, riverfront and ponds. Each season is special with cross country skiing and snowshoeing being very popular in winter, following wildflower blooms throughout the spring, picnics, horseback riding, strolling in the summer and jaw...

Great park for hiking and biking. And, snowshoeing when there's snow on the ground! Varied landscapes throughout our walk: meadows, pine forests, marches, river views.

This park has a lot of trails, but none of them are marked and there are no accessible maps, so go and be ready to meander the park. Hugged on one side by the Merrimack river, and has remnants of a historic and old mansion from he Victorian era. Beautiful picnic area and lots of mystical history.
