Blackstone River Greenway (RI)

Wonderful walk on a nice July day!

July, 2017 by kseb

Parked at Silva St, thinking there would be a lot. There wasn't but the neighbors didn't seem to mind with parking along the road. Once we got on the lovely trail, realized there were several parking lots, but I'm glad we didn't miss a minute of the walk from the beginning (next time, and there will be a next time, as this is one of my favorite rail trails and just 30 minutes from my home) will park in a lot so we can walk the while way to the museum. Saw several deer with babies, and the babies were as fascinated by us as we were by them. Also saw the largest turtle in the water I have ever seen, it was massive! someone said it must be 100 years old. As we walked closer to the dam, we saw the old Mill site, which are fascinating to me! in the midst of the mostly falling down mills there was a fabric store OPEN! Was fabric heaven! enough to make me take up sewing so I can make a quilt like one of the many beauties on display. Looking forward to the next time when we travail to the other end of the trail!

Washington Secondary Bike Path

A good trail definitely worth riding

July, 2017 by jadsmith001

The rail trail starts at the back end of a Security Company parking lot, goes behind the back of Lowes in Cranston RI and continues down the side of the Kmart towards Coventry, RI. It is uphill heading west, and the first few miles are rather industrial. As previous write ups indicate the east end of the trail has a few root bumps, but is certainly no worse than the average road in New England and is certainly better than most of the roads in the greater Boston metro area and can be ridden with a road bike. It passes the impressive factory at RiverPoint with some nice views near Arctic Village and onwards as you head into Coventry. At the far end there is a rather remote general store, but that's about it. If you want to stop off, it's probably best done in Coventry exit at route 117 it's just over 4 minutes ride along 117 to Main Street shops and bars.

need some attention

July, 2017 by car256

This is a great trail but notice it is starting to need some work that's not being done..on or about the 11.5 mile point there are tree roots buldging out of the path that really need to be addressed. It is quite a large area and there are other areas that are becoming a problem as well.
It is marked with orange paint but that does not fix the issue!

GREAT TRAIL

July, 2017 by hlvc

This trail is fantastic. Very scenic with plenty of photo-op stops along the way on bridges over the river, etc. A few of the shady spots have some tree root growth that disrupts the pavement, but otherwise it's a really great trail with ample parking. There were no bathrooms that we could find so make sure you plan ahead for that. Definitely worth exploring!!!

Great bike ride!

June, 2017 by david.boulanger76

I really enjoyed my ride. The trail was well labeled and easy to follow. The scenery and wild life were entertaining! I highly recommend this trail!

East Bay Bike Path

Used to be our favorite trail - now too bumpy to enjoy properly

June, 2017 by jonbower

The East Bay Bike Path would be perfect for inline skating, if, it was maintained. As it is, it ranges from sublime to dangerous. The Northernmost mile is meh, mostly traveling next to the highway over a bridge, and then through an old industrial neighborhood. We skip that. The three miles from the parking lot on Veteran's Memorial Parkway heading South is sublime with great pavement, beautiful views and moderate wind from the South. Then, begins a very mixed 8-9 miles with lovely views and woods, but period root bumps that are dangerous to skate over. The two wood bridges are a bit worn, but, fine. Street crossings are pretty well designed.
The last few miles into Bristol are lovely, winding though a seaside neighborhood and through parks. The beer and food at a number of restaurants at the Southern end refresh for the trip back.
The takeaway: we'll still use the trail, but, not often until it gets some much needed TLC.

Washington Secondary Bike Path

Older trail with hazards for skaters, Western end is excellent!

June, 2017 by jonbower

We tackled the Washington Secondary trail on inline skates. Starting from the Eastern end, parking was easy, the trail was pleasant, and in decent shape. The section in Warwick has significant root bumps that take attention. Road crossings are generally good, although one entering West Warwick had a big lip down to the road. In West Warwick, there was one 20 yd area that we had to walk around, the pavement was so poor. But, the high bridge over the old soap factory also gave one of the best views on the trail. Then, the last 9 miles is smooth and excellent except the 3 wood bridges which are older and very bumpy). At the end is the Summit General Store with great sandwiches, drinks and bales of hay if you want to take one home.
So, what's the take away? We wouldn't repeat the Eastern half of the trail - too many hazards. We'll certainly do the Western end again, when it's not too hot!

Very nice ride

June, 2017 by albern36

Very nice ride with varied scenery. The only thing I would add to what has already been written is that there isn't much of a canopy of tree cover for much of the ride so on a really sunny day, wear your sun block. Also, the trail continues a bit more after the Lonsdale entrance. It eventually goes on-road and spills you out in a little park near the Cumberland Town Hall. I would skip this section entirely and just end your ride at Lonsdale. The trail is a little narrower towards it's northern terminus as well.

Arkwright Riverwalk

Nice... until it is unbelievable dangerous.

June, 2017 by feralwolf44

This was a nice trail for the most part, with beautiful scenery and all. It just has one major flaw- it dead-ends behind an old, delapitated, half collapsed mill. You actually have to pass through the property filled with rubble, broken glass, briars, and barbed wire to reach the road on the Harris end. Until this is rectified, it is my belief that this trail is FAR to dangerous for average hikers. Stick with the Coventry/West Warwick Greenway.

Phenix-Harris Riverwalk

Thank you

June, 2017 by ngarnettthomas

Many thanks to the person who found my daughter Sarah's lost drivers license on your trail, and took the time to mail it to her!!! She was over-the-moon excited and frankly it has helped her to realize that there are kind people in this world. As her mom I thank you also for teaching her this lesson which I'm sure, should a similar occasion arise, that she will do the same in the future for someone else (paying it forward) remembering how great she feels now.

Burrillville Bike Path

short but sweet and easy

April, 2017 by adamandtrudi

This trail is easy and perfect for young children or a person who needs a fairly flat, smooth ride. This was my daughter (age 9) first time on a bike trail so it was perfect for teaching her the "rules of the road" and common courtesies when meeting other riders and walkers. As for the ride itself it short. Straight down and back with a short detour to a "duck pond". We plan on returning and walking the path around the pond to see how that is.
