Warren Bike Path

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.

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.

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.

Blackstone River Greenway

awesome ride!

Lots of different landscapes.

Not connected, so why is it the same?

September, 2020 by markburek

The best (and really the only) part of this trail starts in Woonsocket, RI. It's very well maintained and a lot of upgrades have happened to it recently. Bravo, RI! I don't understand why it's labeled as all one trail when pieces aren't connected (yet). I get about 20 miles total starting in Woonsocket and then back.

East Bay Bike Path

Well maintained!

September, 2020 by markburek

E Providence to Bristol, RI along the bay! What a great ride! You can also swing into Colt State Park to add some mileage. I highly recommend this trail! NOTE: Currently, yes, there are two detours into streets. I cannot wait for RI to finish the construction, though!

East Bay Bike Path

Scenic, well-kept trail

September, 2020 by jtl1090

The only drawback is that it can be busy, but what do you expect when you have a trail in such nice condition in such a nice location? Plenty of places to stop for food/water/coffee/Del’s/etc, even in the pandemic

William C. O'Neill Bike Path

Fun, easy ride to beach

August, 2020 by aldcon_tl

Started at train station. Very scenic ride. Many people on trail - walkers and bikes. Trail is wide and no congestion on a Friday. Suspect heavy traffic on weekends. Side spur to URI is labeled and paved. Did not explore. At end of trail took left turn after town building which brings you out into another recreation area. From there rode sidewalks on side streets to beach. Plenty of options to sightsee . Also several neat places to stop for food on trail and at beach.

Great trail newly paved and we'll maintained ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿ Unfortunately 2 detours around closed railtrail bridges in Warren force you into a busy street bridge not safe for children ¿¿

Blackstone River Greenway

great walk

August, 2020 by gretchen.l.sharp

This is a great place to walk, but should wear a mask as many portions are not wide enough to social distance. Passed many not wearing. I wish it was posted to please wear a mask as social distancing is not possible in many spots.

East Bay Bike Path

Fantastic summer ride

August, 2020 by pisces31180

Long enough ride roundtrip to give you a workout but not too much. Beautiful scenery, shaded forest, open ocean, sea breeze, Del’s Lemonade, old homes. Will definitely ride this one again with friends.
