Salisbury’s Coastal Trails provide an integral link in the Coastal Trails Network
that connects Amesbury, Newbury, Newburyport and Salisbury. Salisbury's Coastal Trails include:
Old Eastern Marsh Trail:
This 1.4 mile paved trail extends from the Merrimack River to Mudnock Road.
It passes through pristine sections of the Great Marsh with beautiful views and
world class bird watching. Don't miss this outstanding trail. Use the parking area
on Friedenfels Road opposite Striper's Restaurant on US Route 1.
Salisbury Point Ghost Trail:
Named for the "Ghost" trains that transported wooden carriages
(covered with white canvas shrouds) from Amesbury through
Salisbury, this trail now extends 1.8 miles west from Lion's Park.
The trail crosses Cushing St. and there are parking areas at the Bartlett St. crossing
and at Rabbit Road.
This is a hard-packed stone dust trail suitable for walking and biking.
It passes through beautiful woodlands and features native wildflowers in the early spring.
During 2012 we added a trail link to the Play Ball batting facility on Old Elm Street.
This link gives access to the business area on Elm Street (Route 110).
You can also park behind the batting facility to access the trail.
Beach Road Bike Route:
You can ride 2 miles on Beach Road from Salisbury Square to Salisbury Beach, one of the most
beautiful beaches in Massachusetts. Salisbury Beach State Reservation offers
swimming, fishing and camping to the public. Salisbury Beach Center is a
beachfront business and amusement area. Stop in for some fun and refreshments.
