Burrillville Bike Path runs for just over a mile through its namesake rural community in northwest Rhode Island. It connects the villages of Pascoag and Harrisville through a corridor that once belonged to the York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad. The paved path offers a pleasant journey through forest and wetlands, as well as a safe alternative to Route 107 for pedestrians and bicyclists. Mid-way, a spur heads south to Duck Pond.
A small parking area is available off Eastern Avenue on the trail’s western end in Pascoag.
Yes, the trail is short, but it's very near my home and so great for daily exercise. I'm just beginning to ride my recumbent trike in a serious way, and so I do 3-4 laps every day. It's quiet, peaceful, and very well-maintained.
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.
This is a perfect path for taking my grandkids (8, 7 and 3) for a bike ride/walk and my dog loves it too. They can try a little off-roading as well, on the side trails. We haven't made it as far as the duck pond, but that is next on the list.
The path is too short for biking but over all is ok
