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

A system of trails go thru the entire island. Different organizations manage them. They are all very nice. Something for everyone! Watch and screen for wood ticks. Stay in short grass area of trails, and does not seem to be a big problem. The longer grass and brush areas will be more problematic.

We thought the greenway trails were very well maintained. We spent an afternoon searching for one of the orbs, but we didn't find one. We did find a very nice meadow and some small wooden and rock bridges. These little gems and the myriad of birds and local vegetation made for an interesting and enjoyable walk.

The quiet roads of Block Island are interlaced with a network of hiking paths that lead you to parts of the island that are unreachable by car, bike or moped. You can bring a map, or just hop on randomly and see where you pop out. Last summer I took the greenways on either side of Old Mill Road and... More

The greenway trails weave their way throughout the island. The stone walls have little ladders set up to allow walkers to continue without damaging the historic walls. Lovely and quiet.

One of our favorite walks is the Clayhead Trail. Nice variety of landscapes to view, even a lovely beach. Birding is good so bring your binoculars.

Well worth a day of hiking. You'll be surprised by the beauty of this area. Most of the time it is quiet, so you will feel alone. Some places offer horse riding on the trails. Highly recommended that you bring lots of water and a snack, and don't forget the camera!
