Trestle Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A rolling ride along an old rail line from Coventry center to Connecticut. This unpaved stretch follows the line of the old Washington Secondary Railroad, which was built in 1840 to connect New York and Providence. The trail might one day be partially or completely paved as part of the East Coast Greenway project, an effort to create a continuous and well-maintained bike path from Florida to Maine. But for now, the 10.0-mile length is mostly flat gravel and dirt track with some areas of soft sand and a few closed bridges that could stand to be upgraded. Some sections of trail are worn due to overuse by ATVs, which are not allowed on the trail."

Great trail - Bring your cameras... Lots of scenic views if you can ride loose sand and lots of bumps.
