Things To Do

     

Overview

The East Bay Bike Path follows an abandoned rail bed running along Narragansett Bay. The plan to construct a path was supported because the path was soon to benefit Rhode Islanders from all walks of life by providing a gorgeous bike trail for users to exercise healthful lifestyles and to enjoy the beautiful coastline. The path's southern tip will eventually link-up to the Blackstone Bikeway, which is currently under construction.
