Sakonnet River Bridge Bikeway Professional Review and Guide
"In Southeastern Rhode Island, country lanes lace a 4-mile-wide strip of salt marshes, farms, and woods lying between the broad Sakonnet River and the Mass border. This is Rhode Island's flatter part; the barely rolling landscape contrasts with the wooded hill and valley country west of Narragansett Bay. This ramble hugs the Sakonnet River's eastern shore from the town of Tiverton to Sakonnet Point, an undeveloped, scenic spot that juts out into the sea. The route turns inland long enough to pass through the village of Little Compton-one of the prettiest in the state. Pedaling past expansive wetlands and pastures, one would never know that this is the nation's smallest and most densely populated state. Terrain: flat and gently rolling coastal roads. Traffic/Safety: this is a safe ride. The only trafficked merge is onto Rte. 77 south of Little Compton."
