Over the River and Through the Woods!

It’s almost ready to open! Thursday night group runs from the Winner’s Circle are about to reach new heights! As in heights over the river!


A new gateway into Newburyport and/or Maudslay State Park will open any day now. The mixed use trail along interstate 95 over the Merrimack River will provide unprecedented views of the river and surrounding area including Moseley Woods and Maudslay State Park. The span, end-to-end, is 2 miles which will provide a nice 4 mile out-and-back as an alternative to the popular 4 mile Ghost Trail run. A trail head at Ferry Road in Newburyport will offer on or off access to Maudslay as well as the streets of Newburport for additional miles of running.
