Great path with lots of shade. The surface is nice and smooth and well kept. For the mountain bikers there are some great off road trails as well. We go there to walk and bike often.
We started this trail from the Narragansett side and on the way back we took a nice ride through the URI campus. Looks like a brand new path. Beautiful. It was 7 miles one-way, but with the URI trail, we added about 4 more miles. We ended with an 18.6 mile ride in about 2 hours. The path was in great shape!
I did the trail with my husband and my kids. My 11 year old daughter and my 16 year old son. Easy path and nice views. You can find restrooms and ice cream around. We began in Bristol and finished at the conservatory area at Warren, because it was block for maintenance. We rode 10 miles round trip.
This is a 4 mile rail trail that is in ok condition for road bikes with a few cracks in it. The eastern end is under construction. A pretty path going through woodland, farms and overlooking marshes. Very quiet on a hot July weekend
We parked at Lowe’s in Cranston. That end of the path isn’t very well maintained, but a mile or so in it gets better. Cute ice cream place (Udder Delights) on the path. Very shady, which was nice on a 95 degree day. I think this path would be very beautiful in the fall.
good starting point. Trail quality is excellent. smooth macadam. Easy riding. No hills. well kept along trail. Went about 10 miles and returned. scenic and historical. Trail has multiple names
I'm a Moosup local.
Start of the trail from Moosup Village center is great. A wonderful bridge, and paved road, to Barber hill rd. about .8miles.
From Barber Hill rd to Brunswick ave the condition is ok. unmaintained, but not moguls or riddled with standing water.
A Brunswick Ave, there is a lovely footbridge to the left, great for viewing the dam.
While to continue on, its a bit confusing as you go past the building and through its parking lot.
From here the trail condition is quite poor. The immediate area is currently torn to shreds from the local owner, and vandals digging up the banks, and every bit of ground to mine for Quartz.
Several large areas of constant pools of water riddle this area before and after the Rt 14 bridge. There are paths made into the hills off the path around the area.
ATVS make heavy use of this area, and have destroyed it for most others.
Around the bend and peninsula towards Rogers lake, there are well maintained trails into the woods to the river, made by locals and ATVS, for camping.
as you get past this area, and the trail straitens, the pools of water clear up, but there is a great deal of Moguls the entire way to Sterling. there are a few more lovely camp sites, and wading areas in the Moosup river along the way.
Coming out onto main street, the trail continues to the left of the Senior center, and across Industrial park Road, it continues up in the tree line. this section doesnt seem to be maintained all the time, so going through the field, or following the sidewalk/road is fine.
if you crossed the field, or followed the sidewalk, you will be a bit too far southeast, when coming to Sterling Road/rt 14, and will need to follow the road a bit, till you see the brown house, with stone markers, and the Trail entrance along their driveway/house.
From here to Rt 14A, I have not done recently, so won't make notes.
Picking up at Rt14a. NEW work has been done. Also, note there is a picnic/parking spot at the RT14/rt14a intersection. A solid place to start/stop. First, however The Rt14A entrace, is kindof blocked. the workers put stones back in front of the entrance to stop ATVs... but, put them too close, stopping everyone. I had to climb over them on FOOT. not room for walking, bikes, strollers, or anything.. ATVS just drove through the woods to the north, over a hill... kind of boneheaded..
From Rt14A to the CT/RT state border is now resurfaced with hard packed stonedust. about .5miles. And from the RI state border to Lewis Farm Rd is bulldozed. This surface is better then before.. but not quite complete. hard sandy dirt. fine for hybrids, mtn bikes, foot ,horses, strollers, etc. 95% fine for roadbikes imho. Carbuncle pond brook, has a new tunnel built for it, with major new construction there, and plantings. open and likely a wonderful spot for bird watching, and picnics. With several paths to Carbuncle pond, and the North/south trail intersecting here. The Bridge over the Moosup River, next to Lewis Farm Rd has also be rebuilt. A major work. Currently the construction office, and fencing along Lewis Farm rd is still up. theres an opening just to the north, and the fencing from the East is not there at all.
From here its another 2.5m to Summit General store, and the paved beginning of the Washington Secondary Trail.
Its also been a few years since I've done that section, so won't make notes.
Some gorgeous woodland areas, and views of the Moosup River, if this ever gets fixed.
***WARNING! This portion of the trail is challenging. I wouldn't attempt it w/o experience or a wider/gravity tire***
I started at the parking lot on Church St. Ext. It is right next to the Plummer's Landing parking lot, which is the launch site for using the river. You want the lot just past Plummer's Landing.
The trail starts off quite wide and is a very low, grassy area. It is not a well-worn dirt path. However, after approx a half mile the trail suddenly narrows and is a slender dirt line with tall, hip level grass and brush.
There are several sections with lots of very large tree roots and deep ruts in between them. There are also lots of large rocks that create issues for your pedals. You definitely need to evaluate pedal height and position to get through spots and avoid damaging your bike.
Good elevation changes at some points. Some areas were too steep to ride up. Other parts were right against the edge of the river with little to no room for error. A few deep holes were also washed out in the middle of the trail.
I'll also add that there are two bridges that are not bike friendly. There are steps at both ends, so you need to pick-up your bike.
This "greenway" section ended at E. Hartford Ave in Uxbridge, right across the street from Tri-River Health Center. All things considered, I successfully completed this portion of the trail, but it was really difficult. If I had known how it was, I would not have attempted it solo or w/o wider tires. Now you know too. For you "fat tire" folks, have a blast!
This path is so well maintained with beautiful views of Falmouth. I just love it
Excellent ride. All asphalt and very well maintained. We went on a Friday morning and still found it to be crowded. We did the whole trail from E. Providence to Bristol round trip in 3 hours. This trail is a definite do again.
There is currently detours at two places In Barrington where wooden bridges are closed. This is a major nuisance. Does anyone know if there are plans to rebuild these bridges and if so when the trail will be back to normal. I love this trail but would have second thoughts about riding there again till this is corrected and right now I see no indication there is preparation to fix this.
Stopped at the beach for shells. Very clean path and the fort was great
