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.
Everett is building a new extension under Route 16 to connect to the Mystic Riverfront, with a planned completion date of fall 2022. 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 Everett you can access the trail near Air Force Road and the SkyZone Indoor Trampoline Park, not too far from the Best Buy store. It then runs past the Madeline English School before entering Malden behind the Bell Rock cemetery.
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 Franklin Street in Revere, near the Saugus line.
