Voted one of the nation’s best rail trails and in the Rails-to-Trails Hall of Fame, the East Bay Bike Path is worth seeking out. With its close pairing to Narragansett Bay, sparkling waters are a frequent companion. Although bicycling is popular, pedestrian travel rivals it. The treed greenway strings from historic Bristol through Warren and Barrington and onward to the heights of East Providence. Corridor towns and parks suggest stops for amenities and services.
