NOTE: TRAILS.COM HAS BEEN INFORMED THAT OFF-ROAD BIKING IS NOW PROHOBITED AT BIG RIVER MANAGEMENT AREA. Just off Exit 6 on Interstate 95, about 20 miles south of Providence. Although the area is flat overall, the trails roll up and down-not unlike an amusement park ride. These tight single-track trails require concentration. Around a corner, a steep, eroded downhill section may await, demanding good bike-handling and braking skills. Also, because this is a secluded area, you might consider carrying a compass to stay oriented.

Though park rangers do not stop Mountain Bikers from riding the trails in this area it should be pointed out that the "only" legal place to ride bikes here is the fire roads. This is not currently enforced by the state so caution should be used so as not to wear out our welcome.
