Once we left Bush Park I wasn't sure if we'd find the path or not. It's not marked on any maps, and the hospital in Salem has undergone some renovations, so I didn't know if my information was even current. We strolled past the hospital, and lo and behold found a footbridge just where it was supposed to be. Part of the walk was along Mill St./Pringle parkway, but once we crossed Winter Street the path veered behind a building along side Pringle Creek.
Pathway along Pringle Creek
Rhododendron or Azalea?
We followed this path along Pringle Creek for several blocks. I knew that it went on into downtown Salem, but we came to an area where the path rejoined the sidewalk, and we couldn't find the next entry point to continue along the creek. Instead we headed south up High Street past older homes, most with historic significance. Eventually we came back to Bush Pasture Park.
