The 2020 – 2022 Northern Strand Trail Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs construction project is complete! From Everett through Lynn, the trail is now fully paved, includes many new amenities, and all road crossings have improved safety features.
The Everett extension under Route 16 is open, and connects the Everett Community Growers segment at Water Street to the Mystic Riverfront / Encore Casino. Some construction work on final improvements may occur over the winter on this section of trail. MassDOT has programmed a future phase that will extend the trail on a separated two-way bike path along existing roads in Lynn, to reach Nahant Beach.
Community Trail Access Points
There are many informal access points with plenty of free parking located throughout the trail, but here are some areas that we think are the easiest to use:
In Malden, there are two main access points for the trail near Malden Square.
- On the westbound side of Rte. 60, across the street from Malden High near the hockey rink parking lot. That will take you north as far a Beach Street in Malden (not too far from the Revere movie theater)
- On the eastbound side of Route 60 behind the Dockside Restaurant. This will take you south through Everett. It then ends near the Skyzone Indoor Trampoline Park, not too far from the Best Buy, in Everett.
In Revere, you can access the trail where Lynn Street meets Wesley Street in Malden, near the Revere line.
In Saugus, you can access the trail where Salem Street meets North Marshall Street in Revere, near the Saugus line.

What some trail users have to say…
I just biked on the Northern Strand Community Trail for the first time and I have to say THANK YOU for making this trail! I can’t imagine how much organization, activism, and effort went into the creation and ongoing maintenance of this trail over the years but it is amazing to bike on.
My deepest gratitude to all those who helped and continue to help make biking safer and more accessibleWill Duffy
