What is TRAILS & SAILS?
Coordinated by the Essex National Heritage Commission, as an integral part of our mission, TRAILS & SAILS raises regional awareness of Essex County’s resources, encourages visitation, and fosters stewardship and preservation of its heritage sites. The free event expands cultural tourism by bringing new audiences to dozens of historic sites and open spaces, and stimulating new business in the local economy.
TRAILS & SAILS takes place each September, just North of Boston, inviting you to enjoy the diverse experiences that led to this region’s designation as a National Heritage Area. Residents and visitors alike explore the many cultural, historic, and natural sites during two weekends of 100+ FREE events featuring a variety of walks, guided hikes, sails, historical tours, and adventures!
