Nice path for runners, walkers, or bikers. If it's a nice day get out there and be active. I found the trail kind of ended weird though, someone said it picked up elsewhere but I wasn't sure where so just doubled back.

This is a great path. The only thing I don't like about it is you can go from the North Shore Mall to Peabody rd then the trial stops. You have to go to Lt. Ross park to pick it up again. I found out the state would not let Peabody build a pedestrian bridge across Rt,1. But the path... More

My section to walk along is the part between Cy Tenney/Ross Park and Hannaford Plaza. The ponds and marshes attract different birds. There is a very nice bench that overlooks where a pond flows into a brook. The section between the quarry and Bostik is also nice, especially near Bostik.

Very nice paved path through the woods partly along a lazy stream. Excellent for biking, jogging or walking. A nice path for cross county skiing or snowshoeing as well.

Nice easy walk! It is a nice paved walkway. There is a short stretch where you need to walk along Lowell Street. But it's still a nice walk! Free it's a walk! There were families on the walk; some on bikes, some walking, some pushing carrages

this is right behind our condo, so much fun to use it and to watch the many mothers pushing carriages and some running, also kids learning how to use their new bikes, life happens and we get to watch it from our porch.

Very pleasant to walk, bike or jog. One leg is 3 miles. The second leg requires riding on a very busy street (Lowell St) and is much shorter. Nice little piece of country in Peabody. Easy parking at both ends.

This is a very nice trail that follows the Ipswich River from the Peabody-Middleton line for approximately 1.5 miles and then traverses marsh land and ponds. There are 2 road crossings from Middleton to Cy Tenney park and this section is approximately 3 miles long. Mileage markers are easily spotted on the trail. Of historical note, the trail passes by...
