Super hiking!

There are many Greenway Trails, mostly in the center of the island. Most of them do not circle so you will need to walk back by a road, hike back through the Greenway, or position... read more

There are miles of trails on Block Island which is very nice. However, in September they tend to be walled in by the vegetation. We walked for a good mile in what seemed like a tunnel, no views until we got to the end and then we had to walk back through the tunnel. We enjoyed the peace and quiet,... More

There are many Greenway Trails, mostly in the center of the island. Most of them do not circle so you will need to walk back by a road, hike back through the Greenway, or position 2 cars. We usually go back through the hike. There is so much to see that you probably missed most of it the 1st time... More

Even at peak summer season, Block Island has so many great spots to walk the beaches, stand at the edge of breathtaking bluffs overlooking the Atlantic, view quiet sunsets and more. I especially like Block Island in September and Early October, when restaurants and shops are open but without the crowds of August. This is a quiet island. Not a... More

We were only able to travel a few miles along this trail, but it brought us to meadow and farms along a meandering route through woods, hills, and dales, and was a fun side trip from the main road. Highly recommend it.

Crescent Beach is a hidden gem on Block Island. It is located north of the Town Beach (which has a pavillion with facilities), and Scotch Beach (a popular beach for boaters in the New Harbor). Crescent Beach is East facing so you are looking at open ocean for miles. Access is limited so you either park at Scotch Beach and... More

Walking trails abound within Block Island. You have to do some research to find out where they are, but serenity and the undisturbed sounds of nature await you. One thing that we noticed was the prevalence of stone walls. My husband became curious and got a book about stone walls in New England. Apparently most of the stone walls on... More

BI is covered with "greenway" trails. There is no map, but you will see stone markers or wooden signs that say greenway. They crisscross the island bringing you to hidden gems...open fields, streams, stonewalls, sweeping views. One popular one is located across from the airport. Make sure you read about the glass globe hunt going on now on www.blockislandinfo.com. We... More
