East Bay Bike Path

The East Bay Bike Path is the first multi-town bike path we built in Rhode Island. It travels 14.5 miles from India Point Park in Providence to Independence Park in Bristol, passing many state and local parks and recreation areas. Connecting neighborhoods, schools and business districts, the path is popular with commuting cyclists heading into Providence.

Warren Bike Path

The Warren Bike Path is one of the newest bikeways in Rhode Island. Opened in June 2010, the 1-mile path in the eastern portion of town extends from the Kickemuit River to Long Lane, close to the Massachusetts border.

The path follows the abandoned Warren-Fall River Railroad spur, along which the Town of Warren has long-range plans to extend the path further east toward the East Bay Bike Path. The new path provides a major recreation asset to the town, and provides options for biking or walking to school as it links Kickemuit Middle School, Hugh Cole Elementary School and Warren Recreation Park.
