Although only a grassy, hard-packed dirt pathway, the route along the Salem-Beverly Canal (also known as the Grand Wenham Canal), is scenic and peaceful. The old canal, built in 1917, lies between two towns, Topsfield and Wenham, in northeastern Massachusetts, about 30 miles from Boston.
At its northern end, a spur leads to the Topsfield Trail and, to the east, you'll find the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, with more trails to explore through woodlands, open meadows, and swamps.
Parking off Cherry Street in Wenham.
