The Garrison Trail is a two-lane, paved, hike-and-bike path that runs alongside I-95. The trail stretches 1.8 miles between State Route 113 in Newburyport and State Route 110 at the Amesbury-Salisbury border. The trail gets its name from William Lloyd Garrison, the famous 19th Century journalist and abolitionist who was born in Newburyport. The route takes users over the Merrimack River using the Whittier Bridge, which borrows its name from Garrison's fellow abolitionist, John Greenleaf Whittier. The Garrison Trail is part of the Coastal Trails network which connects the communities of Amesbury, Newbury, Newburyport and Salisbury. At the trail's north end, it meets the stone-dust Ghost Trail in Salisbury.
Users can access this trail at the following points (from north to south):
