The Little River Nature Trail is a one mile trail managed by the Little River Nature Trail with easy terrain between Story Avenue and Hale Street in Newburyport. It's proximity to Interstate 95 has very little effect on the amount of flora and fauna that can be found along the trail. There are still has remnants of the old highway crossing the trail itself!
