Great trail - Bring your Cameras... Lots of scenic views and paved al the way.
This is a nice scenic path. It's good for a short bike ride or walk with the family. The path follows the Blackstone canal for most of the way and has some good views of the Blackstone river in some areas. The path is fairly short now but it gets extended every summer. On weekends it can get crouded but during the week it is usually empty. This is a great place to see the fall foliage.
I rode this trail Christmas Eve morning. Only a few people on it. Free to go my own pace. A very good ride, even if it was on a paved path. Its just been extended recently and should o through Woonsocket within a year or two.
