Salisbury Point Ghost Trail
This trail extends 1.8 miles west from Lion’s Park and crosses Cushing St. There is a parking area at the Bartlett St. crossing. This is a hard-packed, well-maintained, stone dust trail suitable for walking and biking. It passes through beautiful woodlands and features native wildflowers in the early Spring. Named for the “Ghost” trains that transported early automobile bodies (covered with white muslin shrouds) from Fisher Body in Amesbury through Salisbury with their “ghostly” freight on their way to Boston, Detroit and New York. Passenger service was also popular on the Salisbury rail line, and people could travel throughout New England from Salisbury. In 1936 passenger service was discontinued.
Old Eastern Marsh Trail
This 1.4 mile 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. The trail has been paved and is now open for exploration.
