Middleton Rail Trail Description

The Middleton Rail Trail is a trail along the former Essex Railroad. When complete, the trail will stretch 4.5 miles from the North Andover border, through the town, and will eventually join the Danvers Rail Trail. Phase I & II are now complete, stretching from Essex Street 1.5 miles to Oak Street near the Ipswich River. The trail is ADA accessible and open for a variety of non-motorized uses throughout the year.

The installation of new kiosks, bike racks, bike repair stations and benches is underway on the finished sections of the trail. The first of two kiosks has been installed at the entrance off Creedon Lane, near the Howe-Manning School. The second will be placed on Essex Street. 

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

Trail is very sunny and a few bugs. No designated parking in Middleton. Best part of hike was Richardson's Ice Cream was .5 mile drive.

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.
