World War II Veterans Memorial Trail

Great paved trail. Perfect for strollers. It's really about 2 miles each way. Very nice scenery with trees on each side. There is a little bit of parking at the end of Cobb st. Otherwise I would say you can park near the town hall.

Quonset Point Bike Path

Avid Runner

October, 2020 by runner3092

Started my run from the Home goods location and it was pretty easy to get on the bath. Park in the main lot, Take the road that leads around back to the left of the store and there is a foot path that connects you. When starting from this location the path is longer than what is said on the official length. I’d say it more like 3.5-4 miles. Other that that its a beautiful trail the brings you all the way to the water front.

Upper Charles Trail

Excellent trail

October, 2020 by mendezmartin

Excellent condition, beautiful landscapes, bridges and tunnels - this trail is amongst the very best we’ve done. Good for any level, from family riding to faster-type work-out. Highly recommended.

Upper Charles Trail

Upper Charles on my bike

October, 2020 by kneec423

This was my first time on this trail, despite driving by it more times than I can count. What a wonderful ride. Mostly flat, but some low grade rises. Can’t wait to come back again- maybe tomorrow!

East Bay Bike Path

Wonderful trail full of vareity

September, 2020 by robert.richter89

I rode the entire East Bay Bike Path starting in Providence at India Point Park and ending in Bristol. The path is completely paved, well marked and in perfect condition. My only complaint is that finding the beginning of the Path was slightly difficult for me due to some confusing signage but I was able to find it without too much issue.

I really enjoyed the varying scenery starting with an urban environment flanked by a more industrialized part of the bay in Providence. As I rode I passed by residential neighborhoods, beaches, saltwater marshes and nature preserves. There were many towns along the way that afford many options to grab something to eat or drink. There isn't much shade in Providence but that wasn't much of an issue for me during a beautiful Fall day.

The two bridge closures were not unsafe at all as the detour puts you on busy bridges that have very wide sidewalks that give you an option to walk your bike on to avoid riding on the narrow shoulder.

G & S Trolley trail

Nice bike path, better than expected

September, 2020 by gregory.messina

This asphalt bike path has a one fairly large hill and seemed longer than 1.6 miles. Very quiet and low volume bike path. As mentioned, there are easy off-shoots to the Hayley Farm dirt trails and Bluff Point trails. With all of connecting trails we were able to amass a 10-mile ride. Instead of parking in the Midway Oval neighborhood cul-de-sac, you can park at Hayley Farm or Bluff Point - the bike path can be accessed from both spots but the Hayley Farm trail can be rocky in parts. From Bluff Point the path can be reached two ways: first way is passing by the port-o-lets on the left and riding east all the way to the foot bridge over the train tracks - the bike path starts/ends here. Second way is by riding out of Bluff Point back towards RT 1, after passing under the railroad trestle bridge - turn right onto Industrial Drive and into the industrial park. Take this road about 500 yards and on the left will be a a short dirt path that connects to the Midway Oval cul-de-sac.

Blackstone River Greenway

Beautiful trail with waterfalls

September, 2020 by michel1030

This is a beautiful bike path, easy to moderately easy (has a couple hills) that runs along the Blackstone River. So many places to stop and see the water, especially at the falls. As other reviewers mentioned, GPS goes a little crazy here and took us out of our way-- it does not recognize Rivers Edge Recreation area (parking lot) as a destination. I suggest you put in 195 Davison Ave, Woonsocket, to get to the northern trail head parking lot (called River's Edge.) We started there and rode down 6.1 miles to Ashton Village mill and (across the bridge) museum. A Fix-it station, with tools and an air pump is located there. The trail continues down to Slater Mill in Pawtucket (another 6+ miles) but we were looking for a shorter ride today and turned around here to head back. FYI the first waterfall is in Lincoln, about 1.5 miles from River's Edge parking lot- it is beautiful! The second one is about another mile from there (both are manmade.) Those were the only two on this 6 mile stretch. The park ranger at Ashton suggested next time we park in Ashton and complete the ride down to Slater Mill, where there is a natural waterfall and the ride is very pretty.

Blackstone River Greenway

Hanover Branch Rail Trail

Love this Trail

September, 2020 by danielle.bullock.980

This is one of my favorite trails. It’s a nice paved trail that crosses a few streets, an intersection, The Rockland Police Dept, and is surrounded mostly by trees.

Bridle Trail

A Little Hard to Find

September, 2020 by jecurran99

It's a nice little ride but interrupted by a number of street crossings.The southern end is behind the CVS on Ocean Street (rte 139) in Marshfield. The northern end is behind Marshfield Auto Body on Station Street off of Summer St. Parking at the northern end is limited. There is no signage that identifies it as the Bridle Trail on either end.

Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail

Great walk. It was 4 miles round trip to go to the end by Lepages seafood. Very scenic. Watch out for the Fiesta duck in the beginning with the red head. He gives you a hard stare down and will chase you. But lots of artwork along the way.

Heading south toward the Colchester spur, the map shows a fork in the path that veers off to the left. This doesn’t exit. You have to continue down an take a real left. There’s a sign.
