Lincoln Woods State Park Professional Review and Guide
"A mix of challenging double-track, single-track, and dirt roads in a popular state park. Devotees of the mountain bike trails at Lincoln Woods claim that with creativity and a few paved stretches, bikers can squeeze 15 to 20 miles out of the trails here.The official count comes in closer to 10, but either way this 627-acre oasis near Providence is a welcome treat for city dwellers and visitors alike. The mountain bike trails are unnamed and unblazed, so there’s bound to be a bit of trial, error, and exploration involved for those unfamiliar with them. Consult your map often to help keep your bearings."
--Christie Matheson, Discover Rhode Island (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
Lincoln woods is a gem in a tiny state. It is shocking the variety of terrain that can be found in this small state park ranging from easy singletrack to one very frightening, experts only gap/10 foot drop. These trails equal if not outdo the famous Viet Nam trails in nearby Milford Mass.
Enter the park off state rt 146. Go left at the T at the park entrance and park as soon as you find a space. Stay off the trails on the left side of the road as these are equestrian use only. Begin on the road staying to the left at the next fork in the road. At this point any trail to the right will get you there but continuing to the top of the hill to the area opposite the large boulder with "donky punch" on it will yield unbelieveable downhills and heart wrenching uphills.
Please take care of these trails. A devoted group of riders maintain them year-round out of the kindness of their hearts.
