Arkwright Riverwalk Description

The Arkwright Riverwalk, founded on a former rail bed purchased from Penn Central Railroad, is located in Coventry, a rural central Rhode Island town that was built around textile mills. The one-mile trail includes a wooden boardwalk, but is primarily surfaced with dirt and follows the north branch the Pawtuxet River. Future plans include a connection to the Phenix-Harris Riverwalk, just over a mile away.

Parking and Trail Access

A small parking area is available off Hill Street.

Arkwright Riverwalk Reviews

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.
