Middleton Rail Trail Description

The Middleton Rail Trail is a trail project along the former Essex Railroad. When complete, the trail will stretch 4.5 miles through the town, and perhaps join the Danvers Rail Trail. Phase I of the trail was completed in late 2020 and travels just under 0.75 miles between Essex Street and Central Street next to the Middleton downtown area. The trail is ADA accessible and open for a variety of non-motorized uses throughout the year.

Parking and Trail Access

There is no assigned parking but on the weekends there is a parking lot at the end of Central Street used for Howe-Manning Elementary teacher parking during the week.

Middleton Rail Trail Reviews

A work in progress

This trail has been extended from the Howe School eastward crossing Webb St., ending at Maple Street. The surface on the western section is nicely compacted, the eastern section, not so much. And the Webb Street crossing is pretty rocky & washed out. It is still under construction but useable. Would be a great place for a kid learning to ride a mountain bike on a rough surface. Pretty straight, flat, and quiet.
