The Quincy Salt Marsh Trail is a half-mile long nature walk designed to showcase the major plant and animal species that find their homes in and around the Quincy salt marsh. Each season brings its’ own visual treats. As early as May you can see many flowers dotting the landscape. In summer and early fall, the colors of the marsh reach their peak and provide magnificent views.

Originally designed and constructed in 1973 by Eagle Scout Charles Phelan Junior, with the assistance of Quincy Boy Scout Troop #20, the Quincy Salt Marsh Trail was updated and restored in 1999 through the efforts of local educators at the Beechwood Knoll Elementary School, located at the edge of the marsh. Currently, the signage along the trail needs to be updated and restored again.

An electronic guide to the trail and a print version are available on the Internet (http://efg.cs.umb.edu/sailors/index.html).

The Quincy Salt Marsh Trail, along with the surrounding marshland, is under the protection of the Quincy Conservation Commission. The Commission is dedicated to keeping this land preserved in its natural state for the enjoyment and benefit of all the citizens of Quincy.
