Phenix-Harris Riverwalk Description

The Phenix-Harris Riverwalk, a short trail built on a former rail bed purchased from Penn Central Railroad, connects West Warwick and Coventry, two towns on the outskirts of Providence. The dirt pathway offers a peaceful and wooded oasis between the Pawtuxet River and residential neighborhoods. Future plans include a connection to the Arkwright Riverwalk, just over a mile away.

Parking and Trail Access

Phenix-Harris Riverwalk Reviews

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.

"This trail starts at the intersection of Fairview Ave and Rt. 115, across from the church. A small sign marks the trailhead. The trail has a flat, dirt surface, running only a couple of blocks until the next intersection. A fence blocks access to the riverbank across the street.

In the semi-near future it will be connected with the Arkwright Riverwalk, which ends behind the demonic fence. We can walk over a mile then (see the review of the Arkwright Riverwalk on this site also)."

"The trail starts by a little parking lot on Hill Street. This lot is is accessible from Route 115 West, then take a left onto Colvin to the end, than take a right onto Hill Street followed by the parking lot on the left. The trail is a nice little neighborhood trail, about a mile long, with a rough dirt surface. The wide main trail is fairly straight along the Pawtuxet River. Short, narrow side trails go off into the woods and closer to the river. There is mud, sand, rocks and exposed roots in some areas, requiring a little bit of care when walking. It can be a pleasant walk.

This trail, however, is not for someone who wants true solitude or a pristine setting. Part of the trail passes by a busy street. More important is the impact of neighborhood kids, who apparently drive ATV's on and off the trail, sit around drinking beer and leave trash everywhere.

The trail will be extended a couple more blocks to connect with the Phenix Harris Riverwalk in the semi-near future."
