When complete, the Salem Bike-Ped Corridor will run for more than 5 miles on a former Boston and Maine Railroad corridor from connections with the Windham Rail Trail (north) and Methuen Rail Trail (south) in their respective towns. The completion of this crucial stretch of trail will allow for an uninterrupted trek from the northern edge of Lawrence, Massachusetts, to downtown Derry, New Hampshire.
These three trails, as well as several others farther north, are also components of the in-progress Granite State Rail Trail, which will eventually span the length of New Hampshire. For now, the paved Salem Bike-Ped Corridor exists in two segments: the southern segment runs for only about a block behind the popular Tuscan Kitchen restaurant on Main Street in Salem. In fact, the restaurant's owner generously paid for construction of this segment, and has made the eatery's outdoor patio available for trail users—be sure to stop in for a bite to eat to show your appreciation!
On Main Street, visit the Salem Depot Transportation Museum, housed in a restored Boston and Maine Railroad station. The museum happily offers restrooms and water to trail users.
The northern segment is a tree-covered trail running from Broadway & Range St. to end of Old Rockingham Rd.
Parking for the Salem Bike-Ped Corridor can be found in the parking lot for the Tuscan Kitchen on Main Street in downtown Salem.
