A long, mostly flat ride on dirt roads and trails. The main hiking trail of the George Washington Management Area, the Walkabout Trail, is not meant for bikers, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t good riding in the area. If you’re looking for a pretty ride passing through a variety of terrain with plenty of opportunities to observe unique flora, this fits the bill. This ride begins in the southern section of the management area, at Glocester in the George Washington Memorial State Forest, and goes north into Burrillville and the Pulaski Memorial State Forest in the northern section of the management area. Along the aptly named Border Trail, the route passes briefly across the state line into Connecticut.
