Flat surface with a places you can sit if need be. Beautiful this time of year.(OCT) can’t wait to explore the rest! Great for families, bikes and walkers.

This is a very peaceful paved pathway. You can park on Asylum rd in the middle of the path. You can then walk both sides for a good walk. Lots of birds ¿ especially towards the river. Not very long for bikes but good walk for small dogs.

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.

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.

October, 2020 by lraciukaitis

This is an amazing option for commuters in Boston and bikers trying to get from point A to point B in the city. The bumpy and cracked pavement made it difficult to enjoy as a leisurely ride.

Cape Cod Rail Trail

A great trail for all riders despite numerous road crossings

September, 2020 by robert.richter89

I recently rode almost the entire Cape Cod Rail Trail starting in Yarmouth at Peter Homer Park and ending at its terminus in Wellfleet. The entire path is paved, mostly shaded, in near perfect condition and is wide enough to accommodate many people using the trail. There are many trailheads that allow you to ride the trail for as long as you'd like. Orleans is a perfect stop to get something to eat or visit the bike shop there.

There is one short on road section that was very well marked and offered a wide bike lane to protect riders. There are numerous road crossings throughout the trail most of which are quiet two lane roads that were very lightly trafficked even on a Saturday but there are a few that were busier intersections. I must say that all of the drivers were beyond respectful to the trail riders, some of the best drivers I have interacted with and I have rode trails in many states along the east coast.

The trail was very busy on a lovely Fall afternoon, just be courteous and patient when passing and you will enjoy the Cape Cod Rail Trail!

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.

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.
