The Swampscott Rail Trail is a developing rail-trail in the North Shore community of Swampscott. When complete, the trail will extend two miles through the heart of the town ending with a seamless connection to the Marblehead Rail Trail on its east end.
As of October 2023, 0.3-miles of the rail-trail have been completed. From its connection with the Marblehead Rail Trail on Seaview Avenue, the route curves gently southwest to Bradlee Avenue. The 10-foot-wide accessible path runs the within the utility corridor that stretches from Stetson Avenue to the Marblehead town line.
Though short, the completed section provides a sense of what the eventual 2-mile rail-trail will be.
Along with the Marblehead Rail Trail, the Salem Bike Path is part of the Border to Boston Trail, a developing trail network that will stretch 70 miles between the MA-NH state line and Boston. The Border to Boston Trail is itself a part of the East Coast Greenway, a connected network of trails that will stretch from Maine to Florida when complete.
There is no dedicated parking, but the trail can be approached on foot or by bike.
